Visit locations around Chicago demonstrating themes of the world tour, including maker movement, social innovation, scalable industry, and entrepreneurialism.

About the Strategy World Tour

All of us are inundated by media accounts of how the rise of tech and manufacturing innovation, social innovation, the growth of the maker movement, and other forces are changing our world. However, we seldom get to meet the people and experience the places at the center of change. The Strategy World Tour will provide a behind-the-scenes look at the work of leaders in highly innovative organizations both large and small in five of the world’s centers of change.

Twenty individuals will be invited to join three-day tours between October 2015 and April 2016. During each visit, participants will have several intimate discussions about strategy with the CEOs who are driving design and innovation at public companies and with the founders of start-ups and social service organizations creating the next wave of innovation. The IIT Institute of Design Strategy World Tour will take participants to five transforming cites to experience innovation where it is most critical. The culminating event will be the Strategy Conference in Chicago in May.
