Looking forward to two Reimagining Management two-day courses and an executive breakfast session in Windhoek, Namibia with my southern African partner BPT Consulting.
I will be facilitating a panel discussion at the annual Building Business Capability (BBC) conference in Florida on November 14. The session is called Future View: the Creative Organization and I’ll be joined by conference keynote speakers Nicholas Selk (Head of Cisco Design Thinking) and Matthew Winterbottom (HSBC Head of Social Listening & Analytics).
The challenge for our panelists is to explain what is meant by a “creative organization”. What would look it and feel like? If you walked into one, how would you know? What is the return on creativity? What benefits are available? How much time and effort should an organization spend on becoming more creative? How does an organization increase its creativity? What are the practical steps?
The conference imagery below shows heads exploding with creativity. Is there a way to achieve creativity that is less painful and more in line with health and safety policy?
No buzzword bingo . I’ll be looking for pragmatic, not creative, answers from Nic and Matt!
BBC is an important conference. It is the only one that provides insight into business analysis, business architecture, business process, business rules, business decisions, business strategy & transformation, and digital innovation toward the pursuit of business excellence. And they feed you. And it’s great fun. Of course you need to be there. See you in Florida.

In my latest BPTrends column I discuss how we can make sure that our collection of process KPIs forms a coherent set reflecting organizational strategy.
In his recent LinkedIn post, Dan O’Neill discusses the executive dystopian reality of siloed working. Dan has been there, done that. You can feel the pain and frustration in every keystroke! But it doesn’t need to be like that. Dan offers good advice, including—thanks Dan—a reference to my guiding principle of process-based management, the Primacy of Process.
Heading into the Saudi summer (max temps this week 45C!), this green oasis is just near my hotel. Now that’s resilient grass, and yes, it is real.
Some of the group doing an exercise during our one-day Reimagining Management seminar at the Saudi Authority for Intellectual Property (SAIP) @SAIPKSA saip.gov.sa in preparation for our process-based management implementation project.
I’ll be speaking (twice!) at the IRM UK BPM conference in London, late October. Conference presentation: “Fit for Purpose—a process view of organizational fitness”. Workshop: “Who’s in Charge—making process governance real”. Will you be there? Happy to catch up at the conference or nearby. #EACBPM https://irmuk.co.uk/
Back in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia for two new projects with my local partner ES Consulting. We’ll be getting the circles turning at the Saudi Authority for Intellectual Property (SAIP) and the General Authority for Zakat and Tax (GAZT).
Great to be back to continue a partner relationship that has been successful for 13 years.
