Deloitte recently released a paper entitled ‘Scaling Edges – A pragmatic pathway to board internal change’, which provided strategies on how organisations in the private sector could best achieve innovation at the institutional level.
The paper promotes the following approach:
- Focus on the edges rather than the core functioning of an organisation
- Identify projects which align with external forces to achieve significant and sustainable change
- Leverage external resources rather than internal support
- Circumvent organisational scrutiny and resistance that change initiatives commonly face
A representative from the Victorian Department of Justice is on a three month VPS Innovation Transfer working with Deloittes’ Centre for the Edge and is exploring how principles identified in Scaling Edges might apply in a government context.
As part of the research, there’s a survey available for public servants to complete to give their views regarding the context.
