The Innovation & Implementation Lab was recently unveiled at the 2013 annual meeting & convention. The Lab will consist of two distinct teams: the Think Tank and the Dream to Destination (D2D). 

Join us for a Kick Off Conference June 18. The conference will include keynote presentations by entrepreneur Wil Schroter and Filene Research Institute's Matt Davis, as well as brainstorming activities and building a working list for the newly created Think Tank team to develop during 2013

Think Tank
What is the ‘Think Tank’: A group who individually and collectively play integral roles in the continued advancement of Kansas credit unions through progressive idea generation.

  • Who we’re looking for: Individuals who are passionate, out of the box thinkers. Those that get excited about new ideas and love to share their own. People who don’t get stuck in the details of "how,” but spend more time (and fun) in the "what if.” 
  • Qualifications: Leave your preconceived notions at the door! This group requires no pre-qualifications. If you are an enthusiastic, out of the box thinker than this group is for you! 


Dream to Destination (D2D)

What is the ‘Destination’? The ‘destination’ will be to generate the process and drive to implementation those ideas developed by the KCUA ‘Think Tank’ group.

  • Who we’re looking for: We are looking for those individuals who are puzzle solvers and love to look at the details of a project. If you’re the kind of person who loves to take a problem, focus more on the operational than the 10,000 foot view and find hundreds of solutions, then we’re looking for you! 
  • Qualifications: Leave your preconceived notions at the door! This group requires no pre-qualifications. If you are a thinker and a doer than this group is for you! 


The Details

The time commitment and responsibilities are the same whether you are on the Think Tank or D2D team. 

  • Time Commitment: One year term. The teams will meet periodically, with a minimum of 3 meetings during the term. Meetings will require in person participation, and location will vary. 
  • Responsibilities: Attend, in person, meetings. Be an active participant in these meetings. Be respectful of the diversity of ideas presented. Have a stake in the outcome of the projects proposed by these teams.
