Regular Twitter-based discussion of innovation topics, each Thursday at noon (Eastern time)

Welcome to

Innochat is a lively, informative and inspiring one-hour(ish) discussion on Thursdays at noon (Eastern US time). Usually the best way to follow along is to head over to TweetChat - sign in with your Twitter credentials and follow along and participate. Tweetchat takes care of adding the hashtag too, so you don't have to worry about forgetting it.

Note: We have noted the impending demise of TweetChat due to the shift in Twitter's API policy and we are seeking alternatives to support Innochat.

It is effective when one side achieves results which are apparently disproportionate to its size and resources.

By asking whether innovation is enough, his topic encourages us to discuss what else is required for enterprise innovation to be effective.
