The CIdea Fest
5.30PM - 8:00PM, Wednesday, September 19, 2012
Special thanks to our host, The Charles Stark Draper Laboratory, Cambridge, MA
Do you wonder how your chapter colleagues & leading practitioners approach CI issues?
Are you grappling with questions & issues on how to manage & deliver CI better?
Do you have ideas of your own to share? (But don’t want the fuss of a formal presentation.)
Join CI thought leaders and your fellow practitioners for our first CIdea Fest! Hear practical ideas from leading practitioners and chapter colleagues on how they have faced CI challenges, learned what works and what doesn’t, implemented novel approaches and solutions, foster creativity,…and more. Our featured chapter members will briefly present their topic, followed by discussions and your chance to share your questions. This is your chance to tap the collective experience and perspectives of your chapter colleagues, as well as share your own (but, as always, listeners are welcome)!
Our featured discussion leaders and topics include:
• Nannette Bulger, Intelligence Pathways, LTD; SCIP Board of Directors
CIdea: The Application of CI to Corporate Strategy
• Trip Krant, Digimind
CIdea: Re-Thinking the CI Process and Practice in the Networked Business Environment
• Robert Lehman, Fuld & Company
CIdea: Using Four Corners Analysis to Gain Management Attention
• Jennifer Swanson, Charles Stark Draper Laboratory; past member of the SCIP Board of Directors
CIdea: CI Team Participation
And remember to share the knowledge...and bring a colleague or your boss!
Please Note: If you have a question, an idea, or a topic/issue you’d like included at the CIdea Fest, please contact Cynthia Cheng Correia at email@example.com.
