Build Your Enterprise Innovation Program

Transform your business by adopting the culture and practices that drive innovation.

Book This Workshop

Most organizations want to be innovative, but less than a third are doing it well.

  • Culture is the #1 barrier to innovation: politics, turf wars, and lack of alignment affect 55% of business leaders surveyed.
  • Bureaucracy slows innovation: innovation requires speed – it is important to fail fast and early so you can iterate to improve the final solution.
  • Change is uncomfortable: most people are profoundly uncomfortable with failure, risk, and unknowns – three critical components of innovation.
  • You will likely fail: innovation initiatives rarely succeed on the first try – Harvard Business Review estimates between 70% and 90% of innovation efforts fail.
