Too often, organizations view innovation as an event rather than a way of life. How do you get beyond one time energizing activities and build innovation into your DNA? Doug Collins will be sharing his experience and leading a discussion on making innovation a part of your organization's culture.
Doug serves as an innovation management consultant. He engages organizations such as The Estee Lauder Companies, Fidelity Investments, Intel Corporation, Johnson & Johnson, and The Procter & Gamble Company in navigating the fuzzy front end of innovation.
Doug develops approaches, creates forums, and structures engagements whereby people can convene to explore the critical questions facing the enterprise. He helps people assign economic value to the ideas and to the collaboration that result.
As an author, Doug explores ways in which people can apply the practice of collaborative innovation in his series Innovation Architecture: A New Blueprint for Engaging People through Collaborative Innovation.
Doug works as a managing consultant at Sopheon, an innovation management software company. He focuses on helping clients realize their potential for leadership by pursuing and perfecting their practice of collaborative innovation.
Doug and his family live in Cincinnati, Ohio.
We'll be meeting at Ingage on Riverside Drive. There is plenty of onsite parking. Snacks and beverages will be supplied.
