HACKLAB: Solving Big Problems Starts With Thinking Small

Fuel Real-Time Problem Solving With a Hacking Mindset

Solving big problems doesn't always mean big changes, slow processes, or complex solutions. This is particularly important for the challenges directly in front of us as talent leaders in the face of a dramatically shifting work environment. Solving larger problems and creating innovative solutions doesn't even require a big budget, a big title, or a huge committee. Building solutions that matter are often the result of smaller, meaningful changes made over time. Computer programmers, and yes – even hackers – have used this approach to solve problems and drive innovation for years with lasting results.

This hacking mindset is foundationally about quickly overcoming limitations to find effective and creative steps towards a solution that can be implemented immediately. Applying insights from a "hacking" framework, culture and engagement author and expert, Jason Lauritsen, will help you start finding ways to tackle real problems and make progress one small change at a time. Regardless of your title or experience, you can make important things happen through a series of smart, small changes (hacks).

What you can expect:

  • You will leave with an appreciation for some of the core tenets of hacking culture – sharing, openness, decentralization, access to tools – and how they can be applied to your work and your organization.
  • You'll get examples of applying a hacking mindset to certain HR/talent work processes.
  • You will come to understand change as a process rather than an event and see that large changes are the culmination of a series of meaningful, small changes building upon one another.
  • You'll leave with actionable insights and tools for immediate application.

Watch today to get the expert insights that can help you boost creativity and innovation in your organization!
