It's time to put that innovation on a path toward reality! During this hands-on workshop you'll take the first steps to move from "just an idea" to a "product that gets results." Organizations that innovate quickly begin by clarifying, experimenting, testing, and learning. These activities are critical to innovation success, yet are often over-looked. Using a thoughtful, yet rapid, process to kickstart innovation, will help your organization work more quickly and strategically, while minimizing the risks of launching something new.
