I hope everybody's had a great day so far heloo and welcome great conference.
I'm Lauren Vargas and I'm here to introduce you to the calm approach to leading in the digital age.
This is a Flash Session, so there isn't that much time to walk through, in detail, all of the various concepts that I'm going to be introducing you to today.
So I welcome you to look at the handouts that I have attached to this session.
[SPEAKER] I've given you the com canvas, which allows you to work through.
Brew the answers to the prompts that I have included in this deck.
So you have a copy of the deck as well.
You'll also find the complete list of prompts and more information about the calm approach on medium under Dr.
Lauren Vargas and my own website, your digital.
Now, I've written about a common approach.
This is really going through the entire concept it's part of a larger framework called the take care to be calm approach, which and for today's session and just going to be walking through the CALM methodology.
If you want to know more about the CALM approach, a common approach to scenario planning, a common approach to digital maturity assessment.
You'll be able to find all of those on medium as well.
So before I get started, I just want to let you know as well.
You can use the chat, you can use UNA, I will try.
Do you weave in some of those answers to your questions?.
[SPEAKER] And if you've got some questions, I can even make sure that I save some time for those questions directly.
All right.
So let's get started.
A calm approach.
I have found that in both my private practice, my consulting, my 18 years working across multiple industries.
Before making the full-time jump into the museum world, into the cultural sector.
Two years ago.
What I found is that when employees are engaged, you have a better chance at digital transformation being successful.
And when digital transformation, any type of digital effort is being planned, we don't necessarily think about the end users or how evry aspect of of the culture of the organization, how they might use, or benefit, or understand the digital efforts that are taking place.
[SPEAKER] The CALM approach was originally it was originally.
Formalized at the end of the first phase of the one-by-one project.
So I've been with the one-by-one project for the last three years, almost three years, one-by-one is a multi-partner international initiative bringing together cultural organizations, policymakers, academics, professional.
Bodies, or agencies, and communities of practice to build digitally competent museums.
The one by one project is led out of the University of Leicester.
The School of Museum Studies and I've been with that project since the very first phase, embedded in the Museum of London and National Army Museum, last year.
The project went across from the UK to the US where I was working very closely with several of the Smithsonian Institutions, Smithsonian units.
And it carries on today in our third wave or third project.
Now, we all know and I don't think it needs any explanation.
That when I originally came up with the calm approach, we were grappling with different pace layers of change, and the fact that digital was changing every single second, it seemed like it was very difficult, hard to keep up with all of the changes in the last year and a quarter, we've obviously seen that digital is a massive part of our organizations and how our organizations are going to thrive in a really volatile environment.
[SPEAKER] So understanding what that value or that digital impact, is I don't think it's that we're not questioning it at the present., It's what we can do to make sure that that awareness and that understanding sticks.
It remains sustainable as we re-emerge.
