THE FULL 2017 INNOVATION ROUNDTABLE EVENT LINE UP:


Date: June 28th // 12 noon to 1pm

Topic: Innovation & the Art of Defining Boundaries

Every engineering use case starts with boundaries, but they are not limited to technical implementations alone. Your entire team needs to learn the advantages of working with Boundaries, and why something that seems like a limitation can be the best tool to lead to success. In this roundtable explore:

  • What are the Boundaries of your project, product or company itself?
  • Why do Boundries matter?
  • Do Boundries ever get changed? (or violated?)



Date: July 26th // 12 noon to 1pm

Topic: Personas, Identifying the Customers

Who is the buyer? Who is the user? Are you building for both? Focus on the real user of your product, and not the imaginary one dreamed up by the team members. In this roundtable discover:

  • The “anyone who will pay” syndrome
  • Why is your Engineer not your average American?
  • Crack the customer mind to go beyond surface demographics and into driving motivations



Date: Aug 30th // 12 noon to 1pm

Topic: Customer Journey Mapping that Transforms Business

How do you gauge the behavior of the customer? Understand the mental processes that lead a buyer to become your buyer. What are they searching for (not just in the Google sense)? What problem do they have to solve and how are you helping them? In this roundtable identify:

  • The steps & thoughts that the customer has before / during / and after interaction with your product
  • What is their problem? Do they know they have a problem? How do you solve their problem?
  • Case Study: the UBER Customer Journey



Date: Sep 27th // 12 noon to 1pm

Topic: Innovating With a Purpose

Everyone on your team has their eye on the target, but are the envisioned targets in each person's mind the same (or even close)? In this roundtable get everyone focused and in alignment on where to shoot:

  • Why do people have different visions?
  • How do you get them on the same page?
  • How does the experience of the customer relate to each team member?



Date: Oct 25th // 12 noon to 1pm

Topic: Hitting the Target

Now that your team agrees on what the target is, how do they work together to get to that target? What are the obstacles that cause well-intentioned, experienced people to miss the mark? In this roundtable determine:

  • How do you marshal resources in the right direction and at the right time?
  • What are the best ways to manage the product through its development stage?
  • When do you know it is time to pause and regroup?



Date: Nov 29th // 12 noon to 1pm

Topic: Alternatives and Competitors

Discuss this very hot topic and identify strategies and plans that can make your company’s offering succeed in the marketplace. In this roundtable explore:

  • Why “we have no competitors” is a BIG red flag
  • Do you want to be the Competitor or beat the Competitor?
  • When is an apparent competitor not a competitor at all?



Dec 20th // 12 noon to 1pm

Topic: Collaboration

  • Beware the HiPPO in the room.
