How to build a culture of experimentation in a large mature organisation and with years of doing things a certain way? It takes more than good tools to overcome rigid hierarchies and processes and siloed thinking. It takes a complete change of attitude.
In this case talk AGL Energy, Australia’s largest energy retailer, will be used as an example on how to turn the tide. For more than a century, AGL has been innovating with their customers to deliver increasingly simple and convenient experiences that provide choice, value and flexibility. As they transition to a low-carbon economy, they believe the future of energy will be driven by customer demand, how communities act and how technology evolves.
Successful innovation requires building a culture of experimentation at a company-level. A culture of experimentation involves nurturing employees' curiosity, listening to data, allowing everyone to conduct or commission a test, and managers accepting a new model of leadership. Essentially, a culture of experimentation involves implementing new ideas or solutions throughout the organisation without restricting these things to only certain departments.
