Innovation in Action Events of Note
Experiencing Design: The Innovators Journey
Ms. Karen Hold
Today! Thursday, February 24, 2022
7:00 – 8:00 p.m. Eastern
Description: On the surface, practicing design thinking involves a set of seemingly simple activities like gathering data, generating ideas, prototyping, and experimenting. But to achieve Design Thinking’s full potential, you need to go deeper. Great design thinkers don’t just do design, they go through deep experiences at each stage of the process that fundamentally alter their mindset and skills. To create something new, you need to become someone new.
Join Karen Hold, co-author of Experiencing Design - The Innovator's Journey, for a 30-minute overview of her new book followed by 30 minutes of Q&A with attendees. This session will explore what It takes to deepen your design thinking practice.

How to Measure and Visualize Your Culture Transformation
Mr. Jesse Fewell
Thursday, March 24, 2022
7:00 – 8:00 p.m. Eastern
Description: Have you been confused or frustrated by the fuzziness of the culture conversation? Have you wished for more specifics and clarity beyond "Our culture needs to be more agile?" In this dynamic presentation, you will use a research backed data instrument to plot your cultural transformation on a graph, revealing unexpected truths. What if we could measure our degree of frustration with limited creativity? What if we learned that frustration was only in one department? What if we could use that data to inform which practices to choose and where? During this super practical session, we learn how to use real data to design and describe your transformation with more credibility than ever before.

Strategic Decision Points for Corporate Innovation
Mr. Andrew Sherwood
Thursday, April 28, 2022
7:00 – 8:00 p.m. Eastern
Description: In developing a corporate innovation program, some important strategic questions need to be answered. I made the mistake of ignoring these questions while establishing the Innovation Lab for Boston Mutual. Between correcting my mistakes and comparing notes with other corporate innovation program leaders, I was able to understand some of the pros and cons related to these strategic decisions and re-position the Innovation Lab to best serve Boston Mutual. The purpose of this talk is to walk through these decision points, as well as to examine Boston Mutual as a case study for these decisions (and what not to do!).
