The Uncertainty Series:  Welcome to the New World, 101

If you’re an innovator, especially if your work depends on people outside your own organization, you’ve been facing even more than the usual amount of uncertainty in the last year or so.

The good news is, as an innovator you know there are tools and processes designed precisely for making sense of human needs during uncertain times. The Corporate Accelerator Forum, in collaboration with complex systems expert Dr. Linda Booth Sweeney, has drawn together a key set of these tools, chosen especially for people working in open innovation.  This series is free for Members and available for a fee to others.   

You’ll have a clear strategic framework, tested and customized with your internal stakeholders. By the end of session 7, you’ll have completed the first phase of an experiment, complete with lessons learned, framed the way your stakeholders receive them most effectively.

What Participants Are Saying

Discovered expectations for deliverables between startups and strategics are surprisingly well aligned ... Facilitation was deft and seamless, both guiding exercises and the behind the scenes support.
Advanced Materials Giant
The workshops and various meetings are all done with a unique methodology that creates an interactive & immersive experience to the members and attendees. The CAF creates a safe environment to share and openly discuss all aspects of technology acceleration from not just the corporate side, but the start-up perspective also. The high quality and easily accessible CAF staff for consulting on everything from accelerator strategy to personal coaching has been of great value.
