An exploration of what it takes to lead innovation. Aaron introduces the building blocks of an empowering environment for innovation and shares real-world examples of individuals and teams who have developed strong innovation competencies.
From strategy to culture to leadership and beyond, the barriers to successful, repeatable innovation are countless. Without a plan to predict and mitigate the roadblocks most likely to inhibit innovation, even the most capable innovators will become frustrated.
From blockchain to A.I. to autonomous vehicles to renewables, the world is changing fast, and in a way that is nearly impossible to forecast. In this session, Aaron will discuss approaches to capitalizing upon the signals of disruption that are presenting themselves.
