When people think about innovation, what usually comes to mind are products. New cars, electronic devices, or even pharmaceutical drugs are often cited as great examples of innovation.

But breakthrough innovation goes well beyond products. One of the Innovation leaders from the global strategy consulting firm Monitor Group, Jeff Wordham, will lead a discussion about the core fundamentals of innovation. Jeff will outline what Monitor calls the Ten Types of Innovation, which focuses on both product innovation and other types of innovation ranging from business models to customer experiences. To illustrate different methods of innovation, Jeff will highlight a number of stories and examples from some of the world's leading innovators, and engage you in a conversation about what innovation means to you.
