Opening Keynote: The Three Box Solution

Monday, October 29th, 2018 @ 8:30 am - 9:30 am

How HR Can Lead Innovation

Vijay Govindarajan

Isn’t it time to open the door to innovative work in the HR sphere? There are just a few simple things getting in the way of that task – the present, the past, and the future. Vijay Govindarajan, acclaimed author and Coxe Distinguished Professor at the Tuck School of Business at Dartmouth College, offers a path forward with his three box solution. In this creative keynote, VG (as his friends call him) will help you manage the present, selectively forget the past, and create the future. The first box – the present – is where most of our energy goes every day. It’s existential, but are we managing wisely and efficiently? The second box – the past – is intriguing. Most of us think we’re good at remembering what works and disassociating ourselves from what doesn’t work. Is that so? The third box – the future – is the denouement. How do we convert brilliant ideas into reality? VG provides us with the framework and vocabulary to move on all three fronts, opening the door to creative work and providing you with the tools to help innovation flourish.
