Radiocasts | September 10, 2015 by Bonnie D. Graham

The buzz: Yes, you!

After a few days of Design Thinking training, one participant told the instructor, “This is not for me. I am leaving.” The reason was not about quality or pace, but rather a matter of ‘fit’.

Should your company’s innovation program be open and broad-brush – or selective and focused, a sprint or a marathon?

Does great innovation require inspiration or perseverance, the right mindset or knowledge and skills, solitude or group thinking, or a little of everything?

The experts speak.
