• Innovation primer (what is effective innovation) and where an organization should invest its resources.
• Introduction to two innovation archetypes (personalities) that are essential for innovation to succeed - Creative Visionaries and Operators.
• Discover the pitfalls of not having a good balance of these archetypes.
