The Modern Workplace series debuts live October 7th—register today

Modern Workplace logoThrow away the roadmaps.

Inventors have a lot to teach us about perspective. Not confined to the “rules” of business, they are free to go back to basics and create new approaches to big problems. Today’s most successful entrepreneurs and industry leaders are taking the same approach. True innovators are willing to look at their problems from new angles, invest in new ideas, fail, and learn from their mistakes.

One place where they don’t take a risk: grounding their business in the right technology to fuel their creativity. Innovators count on Office 365 to help them get their work done and stay ahead of the curve, anywhere and anytime they may be formulating and refining ideas. Office 365 also enables them to collaborate successfully and spontaneously from different locations and different time zones, even different continents.

Modern Workplace—a new, monthly, online business show—gives you access to the successful entrepreneurs and leaders who are forging new trails in business and technology. In the first episode, Modern Workplace explores what inspires Dean Kamen, creator of the Segway and one of the world’s most prolific inventors.

As an inventor, an entrepreneur and a tireless advocate for science and technology, Dean Kamen is passionate about the process of creating innovative solutions for demanding problems. In this episode of Modern Workplace, he speaks frankly about the value of failure and offers actionable advice to today’s business leaders about the process of innovation. And he describes how he and his team at DEKA worked for years through the process of developing a revolutionary new prosthetic arm for veterans. Their reward: the all-time best reaction they ever had to a solution.

True innovators—like Dean Kamen—see problems differently and chase compelling ideas to come up with ground-breaking solutions. They seek out modern tools to improve their agility and accelerate their momentum. Tools that help them be productive any time, from anywhere. Tools like Office 365 and Lync, which enable teams to collaborate more effectively and work more efficiently.

Tune in to Modern Workplace and learn about the smart technology solutions, such as Office 365, innovative business leaders rely on, and how they are using these solutions to turn their ideas into big business. Plus: Columnist and author Ekaterina Walter shares the current trends in business innovation and why perfection is never the goal.
