16 brilliant thoughts about innovation from three brilliant innovators

I’m about to give you everything you’ll ever need to know about innovation.

It comes from three brilliant minds: Ron Baker, a CPA, thought leader, and founder of the VeraSage Institute; Gordon Viere, former CEO of CliftonLarsonAllen; and Gary Farrar, who leads BKD’s innovation process and digital business strategy. They came together for a panel discussion at the 2016 Winning Is Everything Conference in Las Vegas, and they brought the house down with one of the most thought-provoking discussions I’ve ever heard.

Usually, in reporting on a session like this, I’ll try to boil it down to its central theme, but that’s almost impossible here. Each thought put forth by these leaders was its own brilliant thesis on innovation, a stand-alone course worthy of extended study and discussion.

So I’m going to give you the best sound bites from this session and let you digest them at your own pace. We might revisit some of these at some point down the road, but until then, it might be enough to let the wisdom of these four leaders wash over us.

In no particular order, here they are.

Time to roll up your sleeves, friends. Go forth and innovate.
