Last week we held the 4th Annual Innovation Engineering Conference at Eureka! Ranch. At the conference we created disruptive "leap" innovations in less then 8 hours on the first full day.
In truth - these types of big ideas that "matter" are no harder to create and develop then small ideas. That's because:
1) Innovation Leaps are changes that are worth the effort i.e. "they are cool stuff that matter"
2) Innovation Leaps have upside potential that creates pull within the organization
3) Innovation Leaps are a ton of fun to work on as they are truly Meaningfully Unique.
On Sunday, we learned about System Driven Leadership and how to apply it to leap challenges. Monday, we kicked off an amazing Innovation Engineering accelerator that resulted in a 20 million dollar pipeline in less then 8 hours for a mission based company called Waterfields.
Before lunch the team that had assembled created over 250 ideas all captured on yellow cards. After lunch they were narrowed down to 18 ideas that were put through 89 cycles of learning, 21 quantitative tests, and 50 prototypes were built. All were presented with prototypes, financials, and forecasts.
On June 22, 2016 we invite everyone to join us for this years online conference which will be broadcast live from 9am to 5pm Eastern Time:
