Power breakfast session: How to empower an Innovative Culture
"Most people's idea of a great innovator looks a lot like Steve Jobs. Mercurial and difficult, constantly spouting out a seemingly endless supply of ideas. That may have worked for the famous Apple founder, but it hardly ever works for anyone else. In fact, it is often the hot-shots that stop innovation in it's tracks.
Great innovators are not knowledge holders, but knowledge brokers. They build superior networks of information and insight through generosity and a collaborative style.
This program introduces the Innovation Pulse, a self assessment tool fashioned after the Apgar test, that was developed in partnership with Proteus International and will help every team up its innovation game."

What Great Innovators Do Differently
"Take a look at any successful enterprise and you'll find innovation at its core. That was just as true a hundred years ago when Henry Ford perfected the assembly line as it is today, when agile startups bring cutting edge technology to market. Innovation, properly understood, is how people come up with novel solutions to important problems.
Based on research that led to the award winning bestseller, Mapping Innovation this program tells the story of three world class innovators and then explains the principles that allowed them to succeed where so many others failed."
