Presentation by Dr. Philippe Dufort

Recent investigations on conceptual military innovation have produced ground-breaking research on how Western militaries allow pockets of officers to radically change what and how military institutions think. What can we learn from those innovative practices to gain higher performance in the public sector? Mobilising experiences from pioneering military officers the presentation will underline how lessons learned in war can foster innovation from within the state. Philippe Dufort holds a PhD from the Department of Politics and International Studies (POLIS) of the University of Cambridge, UK. He is an Associate Professor at the Elisabeth-Bruyère School of Social Innovation at Saint Paul University, Ottawa. He studies the epistemological underpinnings of strategic innovation, with a particular interest in the translation of reflexive military knowledge into forms that are useful to the public sector and civil society. He is an associate researcher at the Colombian Superior School of War. He acted as an Associate Editor of the Cambridge Review of International Affairs (CRIA) from 2009 to 2013 and was the founding director of the Elisabeth-Bruyère School of Social Innovation in 2015. Apart from his experience in academic research, he has previously worked as an infantry officer, a Human Rights observer in conflict zones, and a contractual analyst for the Canadian Mission to the European Union in Brussels. This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community. Learn more at https://www.ted.com/tedx
