Hacking HR to Build an Adaptability Advantage

The CIPD and the Management Innovation eXchange (MIX) are inviting HR and business leaders to crack the adaptability challenge through a hackathon—an online problem-solving event that will harness the collective intelligence of progressive HR and the management practitioners from around the world.

The hackathon is a hands-on, collaborative effort focused on finding, developing, and eventually implementing real-world solutions that can be experimented within in our companies—not someday, but today. It is based on the MIX’s groundbreaking methodology that will help participants:

Distill the characteristics of adaptable organizations

Diagnose the barriers to adaptability

Jointly invent management hacks

  What are the new management tenets that will help organizations change as fast as change itself?   Why do most organizations struggle to be truly adaptable?  What are the specific impediments get in the way of proactive change?   What are the most radical yet practical ideas for how HR can spur the entire enterprise into becoming more adaptable?

About the MIX

The Management Innovation eXchange (MIX) is an open innovation project aimed at reinventing management for the 21st century. The MIX is based on the premise that management is nothing less than the technology of human accomplishment and that, after 100 years of incremental tweaks, it now needs to be reinvented for a new age. Designed as an open innovation and collaborative platform, the MIX brings together the most progressive leaders and provocative management thinkers with in-the-trenches management innovators—indeed, anyone with ideas and approaches to making our organisations resilient, inventive and inspiring enough to thrive in the 21st century.
