What is the Innovation Expedition?

The Vision:

To help drive dramatic improvements in organizational performance by unleashing innovation.

The Mission:

To serve as a great global connector, identifying and linking influential innovators and potential innovators and mentoring and supporting them in their efforts to solve complex problems. The Expedition searches the world for innovative ideas, individuals, organizations, projects and processes that can be used to help organizations become high performing. The intent of these efforts is to help these leaders create high performing organizations and to help build sustainable prosperity in their communities (more jobs, increased wealth creation and expanded quality of life).

The Expedition serves both as a metaphor and a model for engaging diverse stakeholders to collaborate and innovate.

How it Operates

The Innovation Expedition injects a global perspective and global insights into projects aimed at addressing local, regional, national and international challenges. It engages leaders from all sectors in deep, disciplined thinking about the changing nature of innovation and the new understanding of the whole supply chain of innovation. It assists organizations to clarify their roles in this supply chain and to experiment with new approaches for optimizing their roles to drive dramatic improvements in performance.

This has led to a variety of approaches for supporting innovations in strategy, structure, support systems, skill development and shared values – the Five S's. Underlining all these efforts is a desire to stimulate the transformation needed to build a culture of innovation in individual organizations and in communities.

The Expedition honours diversity as a source of organizational strength and is based around the principles of trust, relevance, learning, integrity, inspiration, high performance, collaboration, diversity, creativity, innovation, passion and fun.
