At the Back End of Innovation Conference, many of the keynote speakers, like Mohan Nair of Cambia Health and Stuart Jenkins of Deckers Brands emphasized the importance of Innovation Values in an organization.
Specifically, how important it is to not just talk about values, but to LIVE them.
I closed the morning keynote session with an exercise for the entire group — what are the innovation values most important to you?
Through storytelling, interviewing and sharing, each attendee volunteered one or two words that most represent their innovation values.
The resulting innovation values word cloud represents the thought leadership in the room regarding the innovation values we need to live by.
