In my previous post, I introduced the idea of the Minimally Viable Innovation System (MVIS) as a low cost repeatable process that companies can implement to drive innovation in their organizations. In this blog post, I will describe in general terms how this process works, and how it can be implemented in 90 days.
What we have to say, what you want us to hear.
That’s how our blog works. It’s interactive. Let’s learn together.
Everywhere you turn today, leaders are calling for more ‘innovation.’ Whether it is in business, government, or non-profits, everyone wants to be ‘innovative’ and create ‘innovative solutions.’
On December 15thof last month, ISE had the privilege of being one of the sponsors of the Planting Seeds of Innovation Second Annual Workshop held in Minneapolis, Minnesota. This conference was hosted by the University of Minnesota School of Nursing, along with the University of Minnesota Medical Center and Fairview Health System, a Minnesota based hospital network. This workshop brought together approximately 100 Nursing and healthcare professionals to give them an opportunity to learn more about the process of innovation and the tools available to them to support taking an idea from inspiration to a commercially viable product.
Two weeks ago, Matt Coventon, ISE’s Big Data Practice Lead, and I went to New York City for three days to attend the annual Strata + Hadoop Big Data Conference. If you are not familiar with it, Strata + Hadoop World is the largest Big Data conference of its kind. The conference brings together data scientists, software engineers, innovators, executives, and software providers who want to explore and learn more about the latest emerging data technologies. I am a relative newbie when it comes to Big Data, so my objective was to go and learn as much as I could about the market and the technologies.
