[Spigit Webinar] Cisco: Enabling Every Employee to Be an Innovator



Let's dive in shall we absolutely so Alex our webinar today is titled "adapting to disruption by enabling every employee to be an innovator"


Innovation is a mindset. Right innovation is about the constant ability to change, and that's keeping up with the times or leaving the transitions right. It's all about the innovator, not the innovation. Innovation itself is irrelevant, what's relevant is when you have people that are committed to listening to each other that they're not afraid of speaking their minds not afraid of contributing their ideas. When you have diverse and inclusive teams that's where innovation is born. It's all about people with ideas coming together and taking a risk.
