The Business of Innovation
The business of innovation explores the fundamentals of innovation…how to generate great ideas, how to ‘fail fast’, how to kill projects without killing people. how to experiment and ‘do more with less’. Terry provides real world examples drawn from his experience at Travelocity.com, the boards of seven startups and his consulting work with companies large and small. Many speakers talk about the future. Terry gives your audience step by step plans to create it.
