Reverse Innovation: The Future is Far From Home
Can America regain its global leadership position? Yes, we can. But only if we ask questions that cut right to the heart of our nation's identity. Business leaders must recognize that the developing world is where innovation starts. Emerging markets like India, China, and Brazil will experience explosive growth in the next few decades, developing next generation biofuels, advanced solar and wind technologies, low-cost health care technologies, and much more. America must step up. The time is now.
The Healthcare Solution: Innovation and Entrepreneurship
We can't wait for policy makers on Capitol Hill to save our beleaguered health care system. Instead, we need a new generation of health care leaders, physicians and executives alike, that are ready to remake the system from the grass roots, through innovation and entrepreneurship. While health care may seem impossibly complex, the reality is that it is hard to walk more than ten yards without tripping over an innovative pilot project with tremendous potential. Trimble's speech will show why these pilots so rarely achieve full potential, and what to do about it.
The Other Side of Innovation
"Genius is one percent inspiration, ninety-nine percent perspiration." Thomas Edison said it over a century ago. Nobody listened. When companies launch innovation initiatives, they focus almost all of their time and energy on that initial one percent -- the thrilling hunt for the breakthrough idea. They draw guidance from countless books and articles that treat innovation as though it is synonymous with creativity. It is not. The reality is that an idea is only a beginning. Innovation is not just the much-anticipated light-bulb moment. It is also a long, hard journey -- from imagination to impact.
