Every leader needs to hear this conversation with Phil Lynch as he downloads the complete blue print to implement and execute an environment of innovation in your company. Phil Lynch is the Australian CEO of world leading global consumer products company Johnson & Johnson. Many of us know the J & J products in our home…. baby wipes, baby powder, Reach, Neutrogena, Listerine, Band Aid, Codral, Stayfree and Splenda. Phil has been on a journey to lead and help the people of his organisation in Australia unlock their great ideas.
Starting inside and working out, in every part of the business, this now-recognised process has not only created an environment of ideas big and small through the whole organisation, it has been a business development model that has improved everything from figures to staff engagement scores dramatically.
Here’s what we discuss in this week’s show:
  • Your leadership roll today what does it entail? What products in the J & J range of products would we know?

  • Dealing with business skeptics and naysayers.
  • How does Phil personally define innovation?
  • The journey to see across the company.

  • The process for capturing ideas across the business, a concept borrowed from Facebook.
