Design Safari at Z Energy
Time & Location
About The Event
Design Safaris are opportunities for small groups of customer advocates to come togehter and get an insight scoop into the design workings of an organisation. This month, the team at the Z innovation refinery is sharing their “in the trenches” stories about the obstacles they have (and continue) to face on their journey to a low-carbon future.
About this Design Safari
At Z, we believe innovation is driven by leadership behaviour. Leaders that have a risk tolerance to act upon reasonable hypotheses and make decisions with imperfect information allow the business to move faster. Leaders that invest in rapid experimentation supported by learning plans accelerate, pivot or end investments more effectively – optimizing spend. And leaders that accept that not all initiatives will be “successful” are empowered to explore a broader range of opportunities. The Innovation team was designed to be a behavioural catalyst within Z. We develop the mechanics to foster these leadership traits while identifying, exploring and incubating next generation products and services that help solve what matters for a moving world.
Whāia te iti kahurangi, ki te tūohu koe me he maunga teitei
Seek the treasure you value most dearly; if you bow your head, let it be to a lofty mountain.
This whakatauki is about aiming high or for what is truly valuable, but its real message is to be persistent and don’t let obstacles stop you from reaching your goal. We chose this to reflect the significance of the culture change we were embarking on.
We invite you to come hear a few “in the trenches” stories about the obstacles we have (and continue) to face on our journey to a low-carbon future.
