Want to Foster Innovation? Put Down Your iPad and Unplug

Want to Foster Innovation? Put Down Your iPad and Unplug Complete video at: http://fora.tv/conference/idea_festival_2011 IBM technology evangelist David Barnes champions boredom as a critical ingredient in fostering innovation. Trying to come up with the next big disruptive idea? Unplug for awhile. ----- Serious innovation has evolved beyond continual improvement to transformational, often disruptive change. Linear thinking and cautious change is inconsistent with the demands of our hyper-competitive marketplace of ideas. IBM technology evangelist David Barnes talks about the dynamics of invention and game-changing innovation, including ways that IBM (with over 50,000 patents!) continues to meet this challenge. David will be joined by Heather Howell, Chief Tea Officer of Rooibee Red Tea, for a discussion of how innovation is embraced from both a large and small entrepreneurial company perspective. Presented by the Kentucky Community and Technical College. Much more than a conference, the IdeaFestival is a catalyst for high-speed innovation, product development, and creative endeavors. This series of events attracts leading thinkers and curious minds from across the nation and around the globe.
