Innovation is one of the key cornerstones of a successful company. So why do so many new inventions get stuck in backlog graveyards never to see the light of day? How can we go from idea to innovation faster?

To me, innovation is the process of creating novel meaningful impact through intentional learning. In this talk, I will share this model of the innovation pipeline and strategies I developed to classify and efficiently scale up innovations.

I'll start by introducing three types of innovations: disruptovations, sustainovations, and maintainovations. Each has its playbook for how to get it off the ground and prioritize it. I'll also share examples from my own experiences, both the wins and the losses, and the takeaways you can grab from them. Finally, I'll dive into a few projects that started as a passion project and grew into major patented initiatives stretching across multiple teams and domains.

Join me as we embark on a journey to dissect the anatomy of innovation, uncover strategies to unlock the full potential of ideas, and transform them into impactful realities. Let's build a strong culture of innovation, and make sure that it is not just a buzzword but a tangible outcome.
