What Lisa Bodell Talks About: 

Kill the Company: End the Status Quo, Start an Innovation Revolution
Winning innovators embrace change—do you? In too many organizations, we’re stuck in the land of status quo. We’ve forgotten how to think differently, and lack the simple tools to solve problems creatively. The very structures put in place to help organizations grow are now holding us back. So, it’s time to Kill the Company!

This keynote is an inspirational call to arms: to start a revolution in how we think and how we work. You will learn how simplification leads to better innovation. This can reignite critical aptitudes such as curiosity, inquiry, creative problem solving, and more. The keynote will bring to life the concepts presented in Bodell’s latest book, Kill the Company:

  • Everyone is a change agent
  • Change involves a toolkit, not a process
  • Little changes can create big impact

Lisa will introduce tangible ways to ignite innovation through dynamic exercises in the Kill the Company Toolkit. You will leave this keynote with ways to eliminate needless complexity with simple, inspiring ways to make innovation happen now.

Little BIGS®: How Small Changes Create Big Impact
Dismiss the notion that successful innovation requires large corporate overhauls and change initiatives. In fact, people are sick and tired of extensive and expensive initiatives that generally don’t work. To get people to approach change differently, we must change our approach. Instead of top-down mandates, it’s the small things—the “Little BIGS”—that ignite powerful behavior change.

Little BIGS uses action-based tactics. When individuals and teams start leading by example, they create opportunities for people to witness and embrace positive behaviors and change firsthand. Using examples of small changes with huge ripple effects, this keynote walks participants through the bite-sized approach to revolution.

Attendees will take away tangible and actionable steps to shake up their organization’s standard practices—from unproductive meetings to go-nowhere strategic planning—and result in a powerful boost to innovation. They will gain understanding of the Little BIGS that will reinvent their own organization; awaken their ability to think; and ultimately, to reinvent the future.
