MOVING FROM BREAKDOWNS TO BREAKTHROUGHS
February 13th, 2018
11:30 a.m. - 1:00 p.m.
NOTE: NEW LOCATION
Whose job is innovation? It all depends on how you and your organization define innovation! Unfortunately the word “innovation” has become a buzz word, swung about like a light saber or sprinkled around like magic dust. The bottom line is that innovation is something every organization needs, but without a clear and shared definition, it’s easy to miss the mark. From the C-suite to the front line, all stakeholders have a role in contributing to and capitalizing on innovation.
But whose responsibility is it to make sure that maximum value is harvested from your innovation efforts? In this session, John Storm, President of the BrainStorm Network, will share how to use the Innovation Design Wheel™ to get clarity about your organization’s innovation strategy. We’ll also explore different types of innovation, along with John’s High-Stakes Innovation™ Process. You will walk away with valuable resources to increase your innovation capacity and maximize your innovation investment.
