Session Description:

 

 

Jeremy Alexis– Senior Lecturer at IIT Institute of Design, Director of IPRO, and the Director of the Idea Shop innovation lab at IIT started with a hypothesis: while it used to be that companies had problems coming up with innovative ideas - that is no longer the case.

Organizations are innovation-idea rich, not poor. So what is holding them back?

He and his team conducted in-depth interviews with innovation leaders at over 50 companies in a variety of industries to understand the barriers that prevented innovative ideas from being implemented. The short answer? Culture.

He'll share the 5 specific barriers that prevent organizations from fostering a culture that drives innovation. And he will lead a highly interactive session on how to engage in change-making discussions in your own business whether it's top-down, or bottom-up.

 

His recent DMI webcast on the subject was one of our most popular- see the rebroadcast here.
