One of the largest trends in enterprise innovation has been the adoption of large platforms like SAP and Salesforce. But many organizations don’t realize the full potential of what these platforms are capable of, and don’t know how to extract that value.

In this episode we discuss the origins of Ignite, how it differs from typical design thinking processes, as well as some of the more common mistakes Brian has seen innovation groups when embarking upon innovation initiatives, and some of the technology trends he’s most excited about.
