Bonus Episode: Innovation in the Context of Covid-19
What does it take to accelerate innovation? What can government learn from industry about the innovation process? In this podcast episode featuring content from our 2020 virtual annual conference, we explore the importance of innovation culture, and how clear goals and the tools you use affect the speed at which you can respond to an innovation challenge. Tune in to hear how the Whittle Laboratory whittled down a 6 month innovation process to one which takes 36 hours, and to explore innovation case studies, with a focus on the experience of learning from innovation acceleration during the covid-19 response.
