"The Taming of the New - Larry Keeley on Innovation" Tuesday, Sept. 18,
downtown Seattle
 
In this workshop sponsored by Puget Sound SIGCHI, Larry Keeley of the Doblin
Group will explain the emerging disciplines of innovation and how they apply
to you and your business.  Larry will describe how to systematically boost
your innovation success rates to 35%-70%.  The norm today is an incredibly
low 4% rate.
 
He will explain how to identify the many surprising, counter-intuitive myths
and lore that undermine innovation efforts-and how to adopt methods and
logic that can shift innovation from a vague hope to a deep competence.
 Learn how the success of the iPod illustrates the value of innovating
across several types of innovation simultaneously, and the importance of
effective customer-centered methods.
