Innovation a Top Priority at Clinton Global Initiative - BusinessWeek: "Innovation, listed first in all program materials and the theme of many of the panels and networking sessions, is clearly the top-of-mind topic. In speeches and hallway conversations, the word is name-dropped as a means for tackling the three other action items. The opening session of the first full day was a panel on 'Approaches to Innovation,' moderated by a BusinessWeek editor (and author of this story). The panel's initial purpose—according to the its organizer, John Kao, founder of the Institute of Large Scale Innovation at consultancy Deloitte—was to offer an 'Innovation 101 bootcamp' for attendees."
