Innovation Teams are working on implementation plans for selected ideas. Each team is led by a Champion and includes GW faculty, staff and students with expertise, information and insight on the innovation idea. The responsibilities of the Champions include choosing a team, working out the project schedule, meeting with other Champions, ITF co-chairs and Executive Sponsors to share ideas and report on their progress, making a final presentation to the ITF stakeholders, and facilitating the hand-off of the plan to those responsible for its implementation.
The Steering Committee will provide overall direction to this phase of the Innovation Task Force process, including tracking progress, providing updates to the GW community, tracking best practices at other institutions and soliciting new ideas.
The Exploration Committee will complete a preliminary analysis of the next set of ideas to pursue, focusing first on those remaining from last year. The Committee will also identify and analyze other ideas submitted by the GW community, eventually proposing a minimum of ten ideas for review by the Steering Committee for the next round of the process.
