Aspen Lecture: From Inspiration to Implementation—Getting Your Insights Out

There is an insatiable demand for innovation and entrepreneurship to help individuals and companies thrive in a dynamic, competitive marketplace. However, the pathway from the seeds of an idea through implementation is often fraught.

Based on classes taught at Stanford University, the framework captures the attitudes and actions that are necessary to foster innovation and bring breakthrough ideas to the world.
