[ONLINE] - Disruptive Innovation Where You Least Expect It


"Disruptive innovation" is a term much in vogue these days to describe a lot of what happens in Silicon Valley.

Join us to hear how Union Pacific Railroad and Arizona State University have sought to transform themselves from their initial design blueprints to fulfill their respective missions, and how the global pandemic accelerated their appreciation for the need to continue innovating, and scale the process of organizational learning and adaptation.
