Feedback form is now closed.
The stories we tell of inventors have skewed our ideas for what is needed to find innovations. We expect epiphany moments, we look for the lone heroes, and we expect everyone to agree. Google popularized the 20% time concept and have publicized the use to create products like Gmail and Google Reader. As companies look to find their own innovations, some have implemented their own flavors of 20% time. In this presentation, we will talk about stories of innovation and the common pitfalls of 20% time. You will leave with some questions to answer for how you want to implement or change your own 20% time.
