In a disrupted world, how do you build a culture and practices where extraordinary innovation becomes ordinary? An organization that consistently delivers exponential leaders, growth, optimizations, and value creation. The key ingredients to innovation acceleration are not what you see portrayed most often in the media. Great, enduring organizations know what it really takes to create and, most importantly, scale innovation during market disruptions. We will explore how to blend disciplined innovation methods with elements of venture capitalism, crowdsourcing, and collaborative leadership to deliver rapid and sustainable business improvements and innovations in any industry.
