The IEEE Joint Chapter of Communication Society and Signal Processing (ComSoc / SP) invites you to a talk on "Your Role in Innvoation" by Leslie Martinich.
Innovation is the hallmark of progress. Where do you fit-in the Innovator's Chain? Find out at this months ComSoc/SP talk.
Companies want to be more innovative; how can you best participate? How can you maximize the impact of your particular set of skills? In this one hour presentation, Leslie Martinich will explain the phases of innovation and ask you to consider your own strengths and where you fit in. Are you the Visionary, who builds the conceptual framework? The flexible Troubleshooter who quickly delivers solutions and test versions of a mocked up product? The Catalyst who engages with potential customers to learn about possible uses for an innovative product and who energizes the team? Or the Producer, the responsible person who comes up with an execution plan, schedules and delivers the final version along with incremental functionality enhancements and who then improves the efficiency of the product or the processes to produce it? All of these types of people are necessary to the successful delivery of innovative products. Come to this workshop and learn how you can be an effective participant in your company's innovation efforts.
