Accelerating from Opportunities to High Value Solutions: Innovation programs within companies has fallen trap to a chronic misuse of the word, to the point most programs are shoehorned into traditional project management frameworks that focus more on the word than addressing the need—enabling the inventor, intrapreneur, and entrepreneur. In this talk, Ray Arell will talk about how to create the right environments and methods that allow true innovation to thrive. This will include an overview of Innovation Hubs, methods like Solutions Thinking, establishing networks of innovators via communities of practice, and other key methods/tools that can help accelerating your time to value.
