Dr Angeline Achariya - Executive Director, Innovation & Growth, Simplot Australia | February 27, 2020

Joining the first edition of the Women Lead Australia program in 2015 changed that dynamic for me, by making my learning curve just a little less steep.  My mentor Guido, a CFO based in Sydney, gave me a lot of advice that helped me reach the two most pressing career goals I faced at that time: to build the world’s first sector-wide, collaborative food innovation hub for the global company at which I was then working (this has now evolved into the Monash Food Innovation Centre -- an independent innovation platform hosted by Monash University), and to start a second career as a member of executive boards

For women, the shortest path to your destination may be a circle
Karen Ross - Senior Management Consultant based out of Adelaide | February 10, 2020
65 Views

For the younger women I meet now, gender is less of an issue than managing particular personality types. Where they tend to struggle is not with peers but their supervisors, more male-heavy executive teams where there is not yet a lot of diversity. I also see women being their own worst enemies sometimes by being overly competitive with each other when the real challenge is creating more opportunities for all of us.


5 Steps to Developing an Agile Culture
Sue Laurent - Principal Product Marketing Manager | November 1, 2019
273 Views

Creating an agile culture is a large part of what makes a transformation successful and sustainable. However, it’s often the step that’s glossed over, overlooked, or purposely ignored because it requires time, dedication, and a set of soft skills not often found in traditional organizations. Without an agile culture of trust, transparency, support, and personal/professional development, the agile transformation will eventually fail.


Focus: A leadership superpower
Martin Burns - EMEA Director, Digital Advisory & Consulting Services | June 10, 2019
341 Views

Continually asking for things, being promised them, and not getting results is one of the most frustrating situations that leaders experience.

Identifying and pursuing the wildly important thing to completion helps to increase team output, de-prioritize starting new things in favor of finishing existing ones, and learn faster. When teams try to do more than their natural capacity, when they attempt to work on multiple critical projects in parallel or multi-task with the false hope that key dates or measures of quality won’t be negatively impacted, poor results inevitably follow.

  1. Know your wildly important thing. Discuss it with sponsors, peers, and teams to ensure consensus.
  2. For teams operating at natural capacity, requests to add work, by default, need to be declined unless they come with a proposal to de-prioritize current committed work.
  3. Adopt the mantra “Stop Starting, Start Finishing”. Repeat this in every meeting, and whenever a new thing is proposed

How can organizations ensure that the adoption of artificial intelligence (AI) will drive the desired business outcomes? Kalyan Kumar, Corporate Vice President and CTO, HCL Technologies, provides his insight from cloud to IoT, the majority of the big technology adoptions of the last few years have been ‘plug and play’ – to some extent, they work out of the box. This is not the case with artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning.
