In our third episode of the What is Innovation? Series, we connect with Michal Davis of Durham County Government in North Carolina.
As the Strategic Initiatives Manager from Durham County (NC), Michael leads a three-person team which supports the county in strategic planning, innovation, change management, collaboration and capacity building. In this role, the team has helped facilitate some incredible employee & resident led programs as part of his role in creating a Culture of Innovation.
In this session, Michael will be sharing about some of these collaborative programs: Innovate Durham- A collaboration with local start-ups and entrepreneurs, IdeaLab- An employee led learning community occurring every other month, focused on building innovation skill sets across organization, and IdeaSphere- An Employee Idea sharing campaign.
