Sorry to be so slow in updating - I went on vacation the day after this conference. Timing could have been better for me, but the conference was terrific! Indeed, the big takeaway for innovation had to do with analytics:

Massive amounts of data available today allow for data-driven businesses rather than business that use data. What does that mean for innovation?

Two talks in particular underscored the great opportunities for innovation that lie in analytics.

Who knows when to leap? Owning the timing of innovation.

There's really only one question to this:

How did Steve Jobs impact the way we innovate?

My answer is that his career offered examples that clarified a number of ideas about innovation that we knew already. I've read a fair number of tributes to him and articles about him lately, and these things are cited over and over:

Ambition: Jobs was ballsy; he wanted to create products that changed the world. He understood that dreaming big was the only way to get big results.
