Innovation Excellence Weekly



Exciting times here at Innovation Excellence, with a couple of big events and announcements:

On April 2nd we hosted our latest Insider Web Chat with Dartmouth Professor Chris Trimble on Why I wish there were no 'I' in innovate.

On March 27th we announced a new partnership with Kevin Riley & Associates and Batterii to collaborate on the formation of modelH, the Health Model Co-Creation Forum, a yearlong project focused on systematically engaging with the healthcare community on a shared platform to co-create dynamic new business models, powered by Batterii. The solutions will ultimately be compiled in a book to be released in 2014.
