Innovation, innovation, innovation. It's all you hear in meetings and all you read about in business books and magazines. The confusing aspect behind all of the innovation hype is that we rarely put thought behind how we design environments for which innovation can emerge. I've found that rarely does meaningful innovation occur when people are directly incentivized or tasked with doing so.
The best you can do as a leader, is empower your people and design an environment where innovation can emerge. In this talk, David J Bland will present real world examples of how corporations are organizing, measuring and leading through disruptive innovations to create their next generation of passionate customers. You'll leave this session with actionable advice on how you, as a leader, can effectively design for innovation to emerge within your company.
Learning Outcomes:
  • Actionable tools for designing an innovation strategy (4 actions framework)
  • A model for incremental funding (internal vc + horizon planning)
  • Working agreements and measures for progress (lean startup + innovation accounting)
