"The truth is that there is no one path to innovation."
CapNuvo provides innovation leadership training and helps small to medium size organizations think and plan strategically. With a phonetic wink to my native French language, the name CapNuvo means a new heading, a new direction. Innovation is typically pursued to get to a better place or a better state, and CapNuvo encapsulates my commitment to point teams in the right direction as they navigate their way to sustainable and continuous innovation practices.
I was born in France and moved to the US in 2000, landing in the beautiful state of Minnesota and settling in the Twin Cities. You can find extensive information about my professional and leadership experience on my LinkedIn profile. To learn more about the genesis of CapNuvo and some of my early work, see this story on the Technological Leadership Institute's web site at the University of Minnesota.
Creating a culture of innovation in an organization is an inherently complex endeavor. I strive to clarify and simplify this journey. Operationalizing innovation and inspiring teams in their quest to become more innovative have become a personal mission.
Through research and personal experience, I developed a point of view on innovation that I am passionate about sharing. The point of view I promote is not a prescriptive model. Rather, it is a practical approach that highlights key conditions that must be met and suggests actions to take. It leaves great flexibility in implementation and incorporates continuous improvement mechanisms to increase the maturity of an innovation culture over time.
I refine this point of view through continuous research and by using every opportunity I have to learn from others, including through the workshops I lead and the business planning I facilitate.
If you seek to stimulate innovation, create a more innovative work environment, or come up with an actionable plan for your business and you don’t know where to begin, start with CapNuvo.
