Innovation is key to the success of any organization, especially during the ever-shifting environment the last couple of years. It is a key driver of growth, a necessary factor to stay competitive, and a way for organizations to create and sustain value for their customers and other stakeholders. And while a recent Wall Street Journal article claims that 9 out of 10 executives rate innovation as important to the success of their organization, only 5 out of 10 of those executives were satisfied with the level of innovation in their organizations primarily because true innovation is difficult to achieve.
We’re pleased to partner with the Performance Excellence Network i hosting an online webinar discussion on Thursday, November 3rd, “Best Practices in Innovation.” The discussion will feature four speakers from very different sectors (a small business, a K12 school district, a nonprofit, and a healthcare-related governmental agency) in a “TEDtalk” format, each sharing insights and tools to improve their organization’s performance and create meaningful change that leads to innovation.
We will hear from:
- Heidi Eliopoulos, Superintendent, School District of Altoona on how to recommit to your focus after challenging times
- Brian Ingram, CEO & Chef, Purpose Restaurants & Hope Breakfast Bar on lessons in innovation, resilience learned in service businesses during the pandemic
- Jared Smith, Executive Director & CEO, Tree Trust on innovation through social enterprise
- Dr. KyleeAnn Stevens, Executive Medical Director, Direct Care and Treatment, State of Minnesota Department of Human Services on how DCT clinicians are engaging staff to drive innovation in patient care
