Dave Blakely: Fostering Innovation

Dave Blakely: Fostering Innovation


Part of the 2011 Entrepreneurship Conference. Innovation and creativity are learnable skills, not inborn talents. In this talk, Dave Blakely presents a set of principles for successful innovation, regardless of an organization's size, type or location. The heart of any innovation agenda is a carefully chosen interdisciplinary team, typically including members with backgrounds in technology, business, and other relevant industry-specific knowledge. Creative leaps can be inspired by empathetic human research, and insights are distilled in synthesis sessions. Techniques such as brainstorming can help teams to direct their creativity, and prototypes can be used to improve visualization and mitigate risk.
