    Slide 2 M Patty Bullington

    IA provided the launch pad for me to work on an idea I had been noodling on for a few years. IA allowed me to dig in, find a sponsor that would advocate for the project, and deliver a solution that is making a big impact for my organization.

    Intrapreneurship Academy provided me with tools I still use today in developing and architecting solutions for my company. It also helped me hone my current skills, including how to talk to colleagues clearly and get them involved in finding the best solution.

    Slide 2 M Del Velcchio

    Initially when I came here I thought innovation only was related to technology and products. So, learning about the process and a new way of doing things I think was the best takeaway for me.

    Slide 4 Ubek Ergashev

    The biggest thing I learned from this class was the framework around innovation. So many times we think about innovation as this sort of catch-all term and exciting buzzword. But there are concrete skills that you can learn and apply… The things we have learned here have been invaluable in terms of thinking through an idea and seeing it through to execution.
