How are large organisations like ocean liners?


Rekha gave a great talk about her experiences as Director of Partnerships of MassChallenge UK, an organisation that identifies new partnerships between mentors, communities and funding to help entrepreneurs.

In her experience, the main barriers to innovation and change were internal – having the confidence and the time to make change was key. If staff feel overwhelmed or stressed, and that change is too much work, it won’t happen.

She gave an excellent analogy, of how large organisations are like large ships – change can be slow to implement. You can watch this in our video clip above.
