  • The Other Side of Innovation--Once You Have A Great Idea, Then What Do You Do?




Chris Trimble has dedicated the past ten years to studying a single challenge that vexes even the best-managed corporations: how to execute an innovation initiative. His work came to fruition with the 2010 publication of The Other Side of Innovation--Solving the Execution Challenge. He has also published three lead articles in the Harvard Business Review, including "How GE is Disrupting Itself," in October 2009, with GE Chairman and CEO Jeff Immelt and Vijay Govindarajan.

Mr. Trimble first broke into the forefront of executive consciousness with his December 2005 book Ten Rules for Strategic Innovators--from Idea to Execution. In June 2006, The Wall Street Journal published a Top Ten Recommended Reading list that included Ten Rules alongside Freakonomics, The Tipping Point, and Blink. Strategy & Business magazine recognized Ten Rules as "the best strategy book of the year."

Mr. Trimble's career mixes rigorous academic research with hard-nosed practical experience. His interest in innovation within large organizations developed early in his career, when he was a submarine officer in the United States Navy.

Chris Trimble is currently on the faculty at the Tuck School of Business at Dartmouth. He is a frequent keynote speaker and has spoken all over the world. He has also published in the MIT Sloan Management Review, California Management Review, BusinessWeek, Forbes, Fast Company, and The Financial Times. He holds an MBA degree with distinction from the Tuck School, and a Bachelor of Science degree with highest distinction from the University of Virginia.
