Jonathan Rivers joins us on this episode of The Innovation Engine to explain why innovation labs usually fail. We’ll look at why innovation labs often have the opposite effect from what’s intended, why Jonathan shut down 3Pillar’s Advanced Technology Group (or 3Pillar labs) within a few months of being hired, the vast difference between tweaking and transforming, and what you can do if your organization already has one.
Jonathan Rivers is the CTO of 3Pillar. He leads 3Pillar’s product and engineering organizations, which includes more than 600 software engineers, product consultants, product managers, quality assurance, and user experience professionals. Jonathan also works with 3Pillar team members in each of our locations worldwide to foster product development best practices that lead to business value for our clients.
