Invitation to Free Webinar on Breakthrough Innovation
I would like to personally invite you to join a free 1-hour webinar to learn about my latest research and emerging practices in breakthrough innovation. Based on my upcoming book, Leapfrogging, I will share principles and approaches used by leading companies like Intuit, Kimberly-Clark, OpenTable and others to create game-changing innovation.
The reception to the book has been great so far, and will be featured by FastCompany, Strategy & Leadership, and in a TED talk I will be giving in the coming months. I hope you can join me for a lively discussion.

Leapfrogging is about changing the game - creating something new or doing something radically different that produces a significant leap forward. Most leaders and organizations want breakthroughs, but many struggle with the often unspoken leadership principles and practices required for creating them. Soren Kaplan shows how strategic innovation isn't just about products and services anymore. Through real-life examples, he reveals how any organization or business function can leapfrog over existing mindsets and barriers to find and create new opportunities. His presentation delivers a deep dive into the ins, outs, ups and downs of what it actually takes to lead game-changing innovation.
