Does Innovation Always Happen Outside The Box?


Innovation is critical to the success of a business, or an individual, coming up with a new product, service, method or procedure.

Joining us to explore the process of innovation are Troy Hitch, chief innovation officer at Barefoot Proximity, and Drew Boyd, executive director of the Master of Science in Marketing Program at the University of Cincinnati Carl H. Linder College of Business. He is also co-author of Inside the Box: A Proven System of Creativity for Breakthrough Results.
