Join Intuit founder Scott Cook and Joi Ito for a session about liberating invention and fueling entrepreneurship in the innovation age. Cook will give a brief presentation on the new skill for liberating invention: leadership by experiment. He’ll share examples of how successful leaders install experimentation systems that fuel entrepreneurship and ignite growth. The brief presentation will be followed by a fireside chat with Ito.
