Over the past 7 years I’ve had the opportunity to help develop one of Intuit’s secret weapons for innovation at scale – the Innovation Catalysts. Recently there seems to be renewed interest in this program, and how we approached the initial development of our Innovation Catalyst community. So I figured I would post a link to the original HBR article. Click here to read about the Innovation Catalysts.
Although quite a bit has changed since this article was first written, the origins of the Innovation Catalysts are worth exploring. Since then we’ve built a sustainable community of passionate innovators, and many Innovation Catalysts have gone on to do amazing things inside Intuit and beyond. Send me a note if you’d like more details.
