PRECEPT:  UNLOCKING INNOVATION: GUIDING PRINCIPLES FOR DISRUPTIVE THINKING - JANUARY 4, 2018


The Princeton Club of Chicago invites you to join Matt Liotine *83 P20 as he leads a precept on this critical topic.  What is innovation? Who innovates? How do you innovate? Innovation is a challenge for many of us, who only see barriers. Yet, innovation is critical and goes beyond just continually trying to improve.  Today’s organizations must innovate to stay alive. Fortunately, innovation does not have to start at the top, but can originate from anywhere with the right approach. This precept reviews the barriers and how we can overcome them. Taking it up a step, it also looks at trends in society and technology, and how they are driving changes in the world and influencing innovation. These make traditional approaches to innovation outdated, and replaced by newer “rocket” methods. Matt will then lead us through a group exercise demonstrating this approach.  Sign up early, attendance is limited to the first 25‚Äč!
