Hello, my name is Bennett Blank, Innovation Leader at Intuit, Inc. I work on a small team whose mission is to foster our innovative culture at Intuit, and train the next generation of product creators. Our team designs and delivers programs such as Design for Delight, the Innovation Catalysts, Horizon Innovation, and a variety of real world training programs.
I’m passionate about coaching and mentoring others to help make their ideas a reality by applying Intuit’s battle-tested innovation principles to their daily work. I’m best known for my award-winning Lean Startup workshop series, and Innovation Transformation programs to help scale innovation principles at Intuit. But honestly, I’m most proud of the impact I’m able to make on individual innovators, and the small wins celebrate together out of the spotlight.
My work has been featured in innovation-related books such as “The Startup Way” by Eric Ries, The Lean Entrepreneur by Brant Cooper, and “The Innovators Method” by Nathan Furr and Jeff Dyer. You can also read about our innovation journey in the San Jose Business Journal, VentureBeat, and Forbes. When I’m not coaching teams, you can find me speaking at various lean startup meet-ups, innovation workshops, conferences, and doing my best to help others avoid my mistakes (there were many).
Feel free to contact me if you’d like to ask questions about our work at Intuit, potential speaking engagements, or just to say hello. To learn more about me, check out my profile on LinkedIn.
