Whether you are operating in a startup space or a part of a huge company, creating a culture of experimentation can be the difference between ideas dying and ideas gaining traction. Yet, it’s not always easy to fight the culture of “presentation” to the right culture of action. My guest, Everyday Innovator Brian Ardinger, has some insights on how to do this. He also talks about the difference between innovation inside the company and outside of the company? We also dig into why ideas often go nowhere and innovation gets stuck, as well as the appropriate metrics to be using in the early stages of innovation. As the Director of Innovation at Nelnet, most commonly known for being a student loan service, but which also operates in other financial services, and the host of InsideOutside.IO podcast, Brian knows a lot of how experimentation is the secret sauce to innovation success.
