About the Event
"The value of an idea lies in the using of it," Edison said. "I never perfected an invention that I did not think about in terms of the service it might give others." Turning inventions into useful, valuable innovations takes a lot more than the creative spark. Research is a critical step in the innovation process and technology a key ingredient, but successful innovators don’t just solve the problem right -they solve the right problem. They don’t just “spend time designing the bridge, but think about the people who are crossing it”. They "fail often so they can succeed sooner." In this talk, I will share some recent exciting innovations at Xerox Services (recent winner of an Outstanding Corporate Innovator award), our recipe for success, and lessons learned along the way.
