I’m speaking at SharePoint Saturday, Nov 22, 2014, on the sunny campus of Arizona State University in Tempe, AZ. I have flown thru Phoenix many times but this time I get to actually check it out.

My session is technology agnostic, a 100 level introductory session and focuses on a topic that should be of interest to everyone … “Leveraging Collaboration to Drive Innovation”. The ability to innovate within a collaborative structure is a top strategic priority of global CEO’s and CIO’s. The technology industry is no respecter of tradition; a business needs to continue to innovate and re-invent its business to achieve competitive advantage. Collaboration is a key component within the innovation process model. We will review an effective Innovation Model and the keys to building a culture of innovation within your business.
My session addresses …
- The basics of innovation
- The case for innovation
- The stories of innovation
- The hacks of innovation
- The next steps of innovation
I presented this session at SharePoint Saturday Omaha and had great feedback; the Phoenix session will have updated content, more stories (good & bad) and more time for conversation throughout the session.
Again, if you can’t make it, I will be following up with comments and feedback from the session as we continue the conversation.
To give you a taste of the session; Innovation does not have to be complicated. Often, the key is One Thing … identifying that One Thing that will make all the difference to your clients, to your employees, to how you manage your services, to your bottom line, etc. Jack Palance and Billy Crystal talk about this in the movie City Slickers [Listen Here].
I hope to see you there !
