Yes, there is a possibility. Please note that several factors determine whether a particular solution will be implemented. These factors include, but are not limited to:
Feasibility – does USC have the resources to implement this solution?
Timing – when is the timing right to begin the implementation process for this solution?
Pipeline – is a similar solution already in the pipeline for future implementation? If so, how does it compare to the solution designed in the Experience? Can we revisit it?
“Doable” – can this solution be implemented in-house, or does it require a third-party to implement? An example of an in-house solution is a process change. An example of third-party solution is construction of a new building.
Since most of the activities are collaborative, taking place during the scheduled session, there is no way to make up that work. If you miss more than one session, you may need to re-apply to a future cohort. Should you find yourself in that position after starting the experience, please meet with one of your facilitators.
The fast pace of change occurring at USC amplifies the need for creative and innovative solutions. It is critical for USC to redefine the way we identify and solve university challenges. The need for Innovation Agents to lead the charge could not be greater.
This is not a typical pilot program. That said, we embrace design thinking, therefore we expect to continually improve and evolve each program iteration. Future offerings will be dependent upon the feedback received from this initial cohort.
