The experience to push ideas into action.

Make a big difference in a small amount of time

The Idea Enterprise Executive Leaders have a diversity of backgrounds, yet all are well-connected and highly experienced strategic thinkers who have a track record of putting ideas on a path to action. In addition, we have invited these Executive Leaders to work with ASU because they bring real-time experience in recognizing what works in the world, a systems thinking approach to addressing challenges, and an instinct for asking key questions that lead to better outcomes. Executive Leaders offer:
