Uncover a practical and sustainable approach to one of the greatest challenges facing leaders today: transforming your business in the face of imminent disruption. Scott will share how companies can come out of a market shift stronger and more profitable, because the threat of disruption is also the greatest opportunity a leadership team will ever face. disruptive change opens a window of opportunity to create massive new markets. It is the moment when a market also-ran can become a market leader. It is the moment when business legacies are created.

KEYNOTE: Straight Outta Compost: How Living in a Dumpster for a Year Inspired the Home of the Future

Jeff Wilson led a life as a accomplished academic and Professor. Whilst under review for tenure, he conducted a curious social experiment to experience the design of small spaces - he chose to sell everything he owned for a $1, and move into a 33 sq. ft. dumpster on the corner of his campus - for a year. Dr. Wilson will share his experience of living in the dumpster and how it inspired him to quit his secure job, found a startup business, and set out to transform the largest industry in the world.

They changed the rules. Emerson Spartz, a viral media expert, shares lessons from the front lines of the attention war. A must attend to see what's next.

KEYNOTE: Holochain: Where the Evolution of Society Meets the Evolution of Blockchain

Who are you? What are your intentions? How competent are you? These are the basic questions running through our heads when considering whether or not to trust each other. Trust is disappearing - in our politics, our city streets, our campuses, and in our interactions with corporations and brands. We need more trust. We need the behaviors and tools that build trust. Blockchain will play a role, but there is a better way. A more human solution -- Holochain.

KEYNOTE: Inspire, or Else!
  • Michael Fanuele - former Chief Creative Officer & Author, General Mills

Inspiration is the most powerful force in the world, the energy that moves us odd ducks through life’s great pond. In fact, inspiration is the necessary secret ingredient to accomplishing anything
worthwhile – in business or life. Without inspiration, we’re doomed. Learn the secrets to becoming more inspiring — but fair warning: they won’t be pleasant. You’ll have to become delusional,
unreasonable, and make yourself very, very vulnerable.

KEYNOTE: Beyond the Champion: Roles and Responsibilities for an Innovation Function
  • Gina Colarelli O’Connor - Professor, Lally School of Management, Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute

Established companies are perennially challenged in their attempts to successfully commercialize innovation that extend beyond their current products and business models. Adjacent, breakthrough, radical, disruptive innovations require different management systems. We have learned a lot about how to design and implement management systems for “beyond Incremental” innovation recently, but implementation is still lagging. One of the major reasons is the need to institutionalize innovation roles, which so far has not happened systematicall in most companies. Professor o’Connor will describe the results of a long-term study that offers solutions to this most pressing issue.

Part 1: Lean Startup Workshop
Part 1: LEAN Startup Workshop
  • Peter Koen - Director of Consortium for Corporate Entrepreneurship, Stevens Institute of Technology
  • Stephen Rich - Managing Partner, BRI & Associates

LEAN Bootcamp with Stevens Institute of Technology and Former Senior Director of Operations for Intel’s New Business Initiative Group

This workshop will share how to apply lean startup in large organizations. Learn about how the Solution model, promoted by Eric reis and builds on the attributes of Human Centered design, has applicability to improve the innovation process of the entire corporation. Also learn how the Business model approach, promoted by Steve Blank, offers an entirely new process for transformational and disruptive innovations. However, lean startup by itself only provides a partial solution. Large enterprises also require a unique organizational structure and the understanding of the resources, processes and priorities in order to be successful with lean startup. Case studies done at companies (GE, Goodyear, Intuit, regal and a large medical device company) who have implemented lean will be discussed to learn practices that actually work. Attendees will “get out of the building” and work in teams to solve a wicked problem while mastering every step of the lean method along the way.
