The Innovation Discipline: The Inside Out

Through provocative anecdotes and road tested case studies with Fortune 50 companies, Andy shares how the 5Ms can act as a diagnostic tool and road map for changing individuals, empowering teams, and transforming organizations.

Why do we give ourselves permission to be inspired at a museum, but not at work? Because we expect it at the museum. To drive innovation and growth in business we need to give that same permission, and create that same expectation, for the people in our organizations. The permission to inspire and be inspired.
Through a unique storytelling approach, Prophet’s Andy Stefanovich creates the museum mentality - combining proven client based examples with real-world observations. Focusing on the front end of innovation -- and giving your team the permission to inspire themselves and one another with a museum mentality -- is the most effective way to positively impact innovation.
