 CHOA Technical Luncheon

 When an organization is tasked with innovating, where do you start and how do you get there?  Join Kinetica Ventures for a discussion on how disruption impacts business and learn how to unlock new growth quickly.

Discover skills and the mindset needed to shift innovation from being a buzzword to being the tool that transforms your career and business. It will include customer-centric approaches to innovation that can minimize business risk.

Shifting the focus of innovation to value creation and speed-based business model thinking can swing your company ahead of disruption. Kinetica works with companies large and small to accelerate innovation.



  • Explore what innovation really means, and disruptive versus incremental approaches.
  • Business model thinking and LEAN innovation for teams.
  • What is intrapreneurship and lessons from the start-up world including best practices such as business model thinking, lean startup, value propositions.
  • “3 Horizons” of business-focused innovation, rather than technology focus.
  • Why market testing and “getting out of the office” is so important, and approaches for doing it low-cost and quickly.
  • Kinetica’s agile Innovation Sprint methodology to drive team-based Idea Generation and guided customer discovery, including client success stories.
  • Time for open Q&A and discussion.
