So, they hired you to innovate… To stretch their boundaries and extend their existing investments. So, why is it you sometimes feel that you’re preaching to a congregation of people who don’t understand your religion and, frankly, don’t want to get anywhere near your baptismal font?

Being an innovator can be a hard slog. Now that you’ve gone beyond the heady first months of being a glamourous shiny new object, what does it take to really make innovation happen? How do you navigate your environment when you're at an org that is may be silo'd, tiered or have a senior leadership team that wants innovation but isn’t quite sure what that means or what it takes? Where you may/may not have the relationships necessary to create change?

This presentation/discussion is all about navigating that space. Learning how to verse your management in a “networking, trust and test mentality”. Helping your company flex new muscles so that they see change as an opportunity vs a threat to all with which they’ve become comfortable.

We’ll discuss:
- Fostering trust through developing a culture that uses innovation daily
- Making networking make sense to people whose power base was built on silos
- Helping management understand the world of iterative development and imperfection when they’ve been schooled to never launch until it’s 100%
