Today, along with the Innovation Managers Kody Schrader and Heidi Couch we did a class room visit at UNO. The professor Dr. Miles teacher the class 4480 CORPORATE AND BUSINESS STRATEGY. This is a senior level class which the student compete in the Capstone Cup. The goal of the visit was to share how Farm Credit Services of America invests in Innovation and Strategy.
Highlights of things shared:
- What is a Innovation Manger?
- How does Innovation support Strategy?
- Strategic Planning with leaders
- Internal Idea submission
- Innovation Time
- Intrapreneurial Program
- Internal Events
- Ag Innovation Pitch Event
- Innovation Process
I concluded the talk about the upcoming career fair. I also shared my personal story of strategy and innovation on the “Works Here” events. After wards Dr. Miles said the talk perfectly aligned with the class room discussion. Plus students listen better when content comes the professionals, not the professor.
