SDG 17: Partnership for the Goals

To innovate is to intentionally let go of the “way things are” and welcome “the way they could be.” It has been said that ‘breakdown’ is the first step toward innovation, an intentional release of established habits of thought, expectations, assumptions, and beliefs in order to embrace “not knowing”. Business operations on the other hand is based on control. This panel will discuss and examine by which their organisations are able to manage the change (‘breakdown’ and ‘control’) to build and operationalise that culture of creativity and innovation in their workplace.
