Unlike organizations that simply throw around innovation jargon for the sake of saying it, companies that institute effective innovation programs understand that having the ability to capture and execute great ideas at scale is key. But the fear of failure, coupled with a belief that ideation is random, as well as a dependence on innovation born out of circumstance, leaves many businesses unable to manage ideas, predict trends, and develop breakthrough products and services.

AT&T’s Innovation Pipeline

In our upcoming Innovation Cafe webinar, Brett Havens, Director of Innovation at AT&T, will discuss their Innovation Pipeline (TIP), a dynamic, online innovation management platform powered by Mindjet’s SpigitEngage.

AT&T’s TIP program encourages collaborative innovation amongst employees, and puts the venture capital model to work internally. Currently, over 130,000 AT&T employees worldwide participate in the program, so far resulting in numerous patents and over $44 million in seed funding.

Our Next Innovation Cafe

At this Café, Havens provide insight into the history of the TIP program, its current structure, and how employees share their ideas through structured challenges and open forums, which are then refined by peers and leadership.
