I am working with colleagues from Cincinnati Ohio to co-host and co-sponsor the National Innovation TRIZCON 2010 event this October in Dayton, OH. The event traditionally is held to expose and train people interested in Altshuller’s theory of inventive problem solving (acronym: TRIZ or TIPS). This year is different. The event will couple an additional track on innovation with speakers who will be covering topics such as front-end problem deconstruction, innovation end-to-end approaches, methods, tools, innovation culture and leadership, etc. I am very excited to be working to bring methods of practice into the fold of the innovation discussion. I think this event will be a great chance for small-medium sized business leaders of Dayton and Cincinnati to immerse themselves into the best-in-class thinkers on innovation, build networks, and learn practical approaches for implementation.
The event will be held on Oct. 7-8th at the Hope Hotel near Wright Patterson Air Force Base and Wright State University. Stay tuned for details real soon on getting registered, the agenda filled with top creative problem solvers, innovation strategists, practitioners, and thought leaders from NASA, AFRL, P&G, and many more.
