I have followed Phil’s Killer Innovations podcast and his blog for a number of years and continue to be impressed by how selflessly he shares a successful career’s worth of knowledge and tools. Phil has always said that early in his career, he was taken in and mentored by a successful executive and that this mentor had a profound effect ion both his career and his life. Phil’s contributions are his way of “paying it forward” and helping the next generation of innovators.
I have listened to almost all of the podcasts but keep coming back to podcast 27: Ranking Your Ideas. When brainstorming or sorting through your ideas book, it can be tough to decide what you should actually work on. Using a series of questions, Phil will help you sort through the pile to find the standouts.
I have mentioned Phil before, but I wanted to expand a bit on why his information is so valuable for your innovation toolkit.
