A decade's worth of executive surveys on innovation highlight a significant gap between what leaders say they want and what their organizations delivers. Over 80% of leaders surveyed believe innovation is important for their future success, but less than 30% are satisfied with their current level of innovation. So why, despite all the talking, have the leaders not given innovation the attention it requires? The short answer is that they have not had sustainable solutions-practical and reliable programs that deliver long-term, predictable results. Instead, they have had an endless array of partial answers. They are left with an alarming innovation gap.

This presentation, based upon Dr. David Weiss' co-authored book Innovative Intelligence (Wiley, 2011), which was just reviewed by EBSCO's Business Book Summaries, explores the following questions:
•    What is the innovation gap and its root causes?
•    What are the three core principles for sustainable innovation?
•    What is the systematic approach to innovative thinking that leaders utilize to gain insight and discover innovative solutions to complex issues?
