Hi everybody, I’m David Chappell. Welcome to my course IT Innovation: What It Is and How to Get More of It.

I’m the Principal of Chappell & Associates in San Francisco, California. I think it’s fair to say that innovation, especially innovation based on information technology, is what drives our world forward. Understanding what IT innovation really is and how it happens are both important. Even more important is understanding how to get better at it. This course examines these things.

The major topics we’ll cover include:

  1. The i3 model, which is a simple way of thinking about IT innovation
  2. The differences between innovation in IT users, organizations that mostly use IT, and innovation in IT creators, organizations that mostly create IT
  3. How incremental innovation, looking for small improvements, differs from conceptual innovation, where you’re trying to make substantial leaps
By the end of this course, you’ll have a better understanding of IT innovation and a stronger sense of how you and your organization can get better at it.

I hope you’ll join me to learn more about this critically important subject with the Pluralsight course IT Innovation: What It Is and How to Get More of It.
