About the course

In this seminar, Dr. Krippendorff outlines how to overcome seven key barriers to driving innovation from inside of large corporations. Based on his upcoming book Change the World without Quitting your Job, his latest research involving more than 120 interviews with internal innovators, experts, and CEOs, and his analysis of the most transformative innovations of the last three decades, Dr. Krippendorff lays out a set of practical tools and frameworks for navigating the innovation journey. These include knowing what kinds of ideas your organization needs, navigating politics, securing funding, and scaling your idea. He draws from real-life examples like the evolution of the personal computer, Nike’s launch of the FuelBand, and the team who convinced Microsoft to launch the Xbox.
