Innovator’s DNA

Hal Gregersen at USI

Based on McKinsey award winning research about the world’s most innovative companies and organizations, interviews with their entrepreneur founders or current CEOs, and a survey of over 6000 executives and 1000 entrepreneurs and social entrepreneurs, this session presents a core set of “discovery skills” that distinguish innovative leaders from non-innovators. Collectively, these discovery skills—the cognitive skill of Associating and the behavioral skills of Questioning, Observing, Experimenting, and Idea Networking—constitute the Innovator’s DNA®, or the code for generating creative ideas with positive impact.
