Innovation is hot.
As a matter of fact, every executive knows their business needs to innovate to survive, let alone thrive. But the truth is, we all struggle to some extent with what innovation means – for our industry, for our company, and frankly, for our own future.
But did you know there’s a whole profession dedicated to fostering, developing, introducing, and managing disruptive change? These design thinkers and innovation leaders help unleash the power and promise of new ideas, and have a direct hand in creating our future.
With this in mind, we collaborated with Altitude, a Boston-based innovation and design consulting firm, to identify and analyze professional design thinkers and innovators for our new social insights report:
This report reveals what design thinking and innovation leaders are talking about on social media, where those conversations are happening, and the people and publications influencing these big-thinking professionals.
The resulting social insights make it possible for the rest of us get a peek into the innovator’s mindset, and tap into a set of people and resources that may well lead to our next breakthrough product or partnership.
The report also brings things down to a personal level, showcasing 40 individual design thinkers + innovators working in key verticals like consumer goods, financial services, government/public sector, healthcare, and technology. If you’re not following them on social media, you should be.
So what does the report show? Take a look at the infographic below (click the image for a full-size version), or download the full report here.
