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 provides a behind-the-scenes look at the work of leaders in highly innovative organizations both large and small. Twenty individuals are invited to join three-day tours. During each tour, 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 takes participants to transforming cites to experience innovation where it is most critical. All of this culminates in a Chicago experience that encompasses what we discovered in the preceding cities.
