Innovation is important to the on-going success of an organization, but it can also counter established goals. This class will talk about how Autodesk, Inc., is helping intrapreneurs develop their ideas and we’ll provide tools and guidance that attendees can use on their own or in their organizations.
Managers who want to develop more internal innovation, Designers who are looking for techniques to help develop their ideas
Cory Mogk is the Autodesk, Inc., research evangelist and innovation architect behind Autodesk's internal innovation program, Idea Exploration (IdEx). Cory started his career as a technical illustrator in engineering and quickly gravitated to CAD and 3D design visualization. From there it was a short trip to creating computer graphics for film, television, and games. Cory joined Alias to work on PowerAnimator software and its successor (Maya software, later acquired by Autodesk), and as an application consultant writing courses and training artists and programmers. With a solid understating of the creation process and a passion for helping customers with their needs, Cory became the product design manager for Maya software and eventually the product line manager for Maya software and Entertainment Creation Suite software. A lifelong learner, Cory has studied animation, architecture, business, computer science, improvisation, and music. Feel free to use any of these as a springboard to discuss the cool things that Autodesk researches.
