The Pressure To Innovate

An open discussion on how the rising pressure to constantly 'innovate' within organizations (whether venture backed, private, public, or even the non-profit sector) can impact culture and productivity, and what to do about it. The panel discussion (moderated by DJ Saul and featuring Rebecca Linder, Patrick Smith, and Ajay Kori) — will look at how innovation became synonymous with “cool” (and why that’s not necessarily a good thing); and how various 'frameworks' for innovation have clouded the drive toward actionable goals. Lastly, we’ll bring the audience in on a discussion on how to best handle the pressure to innovate to ultimately build something meaningful.
