What can we do for you?

Are you an innovator working on getting an idea out of your skull

A physician, a surgeon, a nurse, a bio-fabricator, a biomedical engineer or a creative type working in the shop?  

Are you part of a cross-functional team at a research lab, part of an alliance or a corporate innovation program?

Are you working within an innovation program within a hospital system, a health insurance system, a health economics program or a regulatory agency?

If so, you are in the right place.

A Matter of Innovation (AMOI for short – pronounced AM-WAH)  is the bridge from ideation to commercial impact across the healthcare system. 

One of the biggest challenges facing healthtech and digital health innovation efforts is crossing that bridge.

Additionally, and all too often, many advanced technical-science-engineering based innovations and digital health advancements languish in translation.

Translation is the movement from ideas to products and from products to market at scale. Importantly, these products require focused efforts to fulfill customer needs within specific markets.

That’s where the AMOI toolset can help.

A Matter of Innovation provides frameworks, tools, models and techniques based on my more than two decades of experience in Silicon Valley and US innovation ecosystems. These bespoke frameworks, tools, models and techniques are forged, with the single purpose of guiding multidisciplinary teams to common purpose while capitalizing on their strengths for the execution of a common objective. 

That’s not all. 

My commercial, technical and legal experiences in Silicon Valley are seasoned with my own first- hand cross-functional team building experiences as a midshipman at the United States Naval Academy and then conducting joint force operations as a surface line officer in the United States Navy. I created this site to share what I have learned about strategic perspective, mindset and situational awareness. 

If you are ready to build a foundation for yourself and your team, let’s talk about taking the first step. 

HOW we will work together. 

Through 1-on-1 bespoke coaching, my frameworks, tools, models and techniques are tailored to your specific needs and to the specific challenges of your project, product or organization. 

Our work together begins with building a solid foundation of mindset upon which you and your team can rely.

A Matter of Diagnosing Innovation is this foundation of mindset.  A Matter of Diagnosing Innovation provides a dynamic framework for asking questions about three critically important areas crucial to your success. 

Three Critical Areas

My experience has shown me that the 3 most important areas for every entrepreneur and innovator are their habits, their business and their creativity. We will delve into each one of these with precision to begin the process of forming them into the disciplines that will propel you forward.

The Tools

You will refine and learn new habits in the 5 Habits of Perpetual Innovation

You will gain a better understanding of your business in the work within 6 Steps from Ideas to Scale.

Finally, and most importantly, you will learn how to accept and grow from feedback and how to get back up after a fall, newly armed with your understanding and implementation of the Three Phases of Creative Resiliency.

In short, A Matter of Diagnosing Innovation is the mindset playbook to provide you and your team with a common language and modus operandi. These new building blocks will develop into a common foundation upon which you can create, restore, build and reinforce trust and transparency within your organization. 

My military experience and work with cross-discipline teams has taught me this truth: The best performing teams are the ones in which every member is valued; every member knows and executes a role; every member’s role is appropriately suited to capability, training, and experience; and every member is motivated to execute that role in support of the mission.  

Better cross-discipline teams means more ideas, commercialized well that will bring a future full of more innovations and ever grander ideas from you and your teams.

And then – we’re on our way to making the world a better place.

One idea at a time

One team at a time

One company at a time

One industry at a time

Let’s get to work.

Fair winds and following seas to all that you endeavor. Know that I simply cannot wait to hear of all of your successes.
