Innovation Methods: Innovation Summit 

Sometimes knowing where to start innovating is the hardest part.


A Human-Centered Design Innovation Summit, virtual or physical, gathers select, cross-disciplinary industry experts and internal stakeholders to develop new ideas and work on company challenges. It sends a positive message internally and externally that your organization is thinking proactively about the future of its products, services and employees.​

The Innovation Summit offers a constructive and transparent way to identify and prioritize innovation opportunities. The summit discussion is customized to address organizational priorities.
