Seminar Description

MKThink is a design innovation company based in Silicon Valley and operating with a multi-million-dollar budget across the Asia-Pacific every year. But just like not everyone wants to be an entrepreneur, not everyone wants to be innovative all the time. And thatโ€™s good, because every organization needs both roles! Innovators help envision and achieve the future keeping organizations competitive into the unknown road ahead while executers ensure that there is a road ahead built on the successful execution and management of past innovations. This presentation discusses the dual roles of innovation and execution in an organization and how those roles apply to everyone but in different proportions.
