Innovation has been practiced like medieval medicine in which conventional wisdom, common sense, and inherited beliefs – not science -- dominate decision-making. There is a much better way. Participants in this workshop will apply proven principles and valid theory to shape and improve their own innovation and growth efforts. The session leverages the research and client work performed by Harvard Business School Professor, Clayton M. Christensen, and Nielsen Breakthrough Innovation Leader, Taddy Hall. Prof. Christensen and Taddy have collaborated for more than a decade, and this session will bring the essence of their work to bear on the specific business and growth challenges faced by participating entrepreneurs. Participants will leave energized, confident, and focused – knowing what to do and how to do it – making their innovation aspirations a high-growth reality.
