Pizza Process 2009

February 24, 2009 | Leave a Comment

It’s back!  The process that brought us the Digital Media Commons, CNS Second Life and DELCAT has resurfaced.  It’s back with the hope of finding innovative ideas to help shape the institute.  The kickoff event will be an innovation pizza party on March 3rd, 12 – 2 PM in CF 434.  Please RSVP.

People always ask me “can we really keep creating new programs?” to which I reply that innovation does not always mean invention.  We’re looking for new perspectives to solve old problems and keep the institute moving forward.  Nike innovated the running sneaker not because it invented the shoe but because it made us think of sneakers in a whole new way.  Apple’s iphone is innovative because it redefined what a phone could do.

We’re looking to form diverse groups, give them pizza, and see what amazing ideas unfold.  The goals of the kickoff event will be to clarify the process, understand innovation and brainstorm possible ideas.  You don’t have to have an idea to be part of this process!  We hope to inspire groups to tackle known problems at the institute to find collective solutions.

Join us on March 3rd to start this innovation journey.  If you can’t make it on the 3rd, stay tuned for updates and contact Lynn McDonald if you want to get involved or start a group.
