Well-intentioned leaders, in their attempts to boost innovation, are inadvertently destroying it. What if almost everything you know about innovation is wrong? What if the way you are measuring innovation is choking it? What if thinking outside the box reduces creative thinking? What if asking for ideas is a bad idea? What if your expertise is limiting your ability to develop breakthrough solutions? It’s time to innovate the way you innovate.
Stephen Shapiro, one of America’s foremost innovation advisers, joined us on January 19th to show us how innovation isn’t just about generating occasional new ideas; it’s about making it a repeatable capability. Based on his upcoming book, Best Practices Are Stupid (published by Penguin), Shapiro will share his counterintuitive yet proven strategies for boosting innovation and making it a repeatable and sustainable process at the heart of NASA’s culture. Stephen Shapiro is an expert on innovation, a popular speaker, and the author of Personality Poker. He previously led a twenty-thousand-person process and innovation practice during a fifteen-year tenure at Accenture. He has given speeches to nearly one million people in 41 countries. His work has been featured in The Wall Street Journal, Newsweek, Investor’s Business Daily, Entrepreneur Magazine, and The New York Times.
