FEI Cincinnati January Meeting - Maggie Nichols, CEO & President of Eureka! Ranch, De-risking Innova

Maggie Nichols

De-Risking Innovation

In today’s world, “innovation” is table-stakes for every industry and every organization.  But by it’s very nature innovation creates uncertainty, fear and risk.  So how do you institutionalize innovation when 72% of the workforce is inherently risk-averse?

In this talk, specifically, we’ll discuss:
- Simple framing phrases that can help you replace innovation frustration with focus
- Lessons from 3rd grade science class that are the keys to innovation confidence
- How to assess, in minutes, if you have an innovative idea worth pursuing
- Rules of thumb for managing and valuing an innovation portfolio 

Presentation is approved 1.0 CPE Credit under Management Services
