Tournaments: Collaboration for a Rapid Outcome

Tournaments are community driven. Tournaments are an engagement tool aimed at achieving maximum performance in:

  • Collecting ideas.
  • Encouraging collaboration between participants with different skills.
  • Achieving results for a challenge in a very short period of time -approximately one month.

It is a well-defined program and yet, for those involved in the innovation ecosystem, assimilating them with other engagement programs is a common mistake.

Fresh Air From Students' Open Eyes at ExxonMobil

I had the pleasure of organizing a special future oriented ideation session for ExxonMobil with students of the Foresight program of the University of Houston College of Technology.

Those students did a great job challenging the team of ExxonMobil by simply sharing their vision of the future. This vision is not something that the ExxonMobil team encounter in their day to day work. That is important. The team was taken outside their normal comfort zone by youthful, energetic intelligence.

Does your strategy involve an Innovation Steering Committee?

How do you ensure your organization innovates with purpose?

During our webinar last week with Denise Fletcher and Markus Fromherz from Xerox, we learned the Innovation Steering Committee helps set the agenda and tone for innovation.
