Four Tracks at Day of Innovation 2018

Innovation Basics

Are you new to the innovation team? Is “innovation” just another buzzword? What do others mean when they use words like Agile, Lean, Design Thinking, or failing forward? If you relate to these questions then this workshop track is right for you. In these sessions we’ll introduce participants to popular innovation terms, processes, and ways of working. This is a safe space to fail forward.

Discovery for Innovation

Discovering new insights about people is one key driver of innovation. In this workshop track, participants will familiarize themselves with methods to help them better understand the experiences, challenges, needs, and desires of stakeholders.

Innovation Leadership

Managing innovation projects and teams is a daunting task for many of us. In this workshop track, participants will learn about building and maintaining an innovation culture, how to manage teams and clients, and how to successfully address failure.

Innovation Strategy

Innovation and business strategy are intertwined. This workshop track will explore these overlapping threads through sessions focused on business strategy, organizational philosophy and innovation frameworks.

Established in 2011, the Indiana Innovation Awards are the only broad-based innovation awards focused on Indiana. The awards seek to recognize those individuals and organizations who are successfully leading the innovation charge in our state. This annual celebration culminates at the Day of Innovation each fall.
