Larry Keeley

Client Leadership

Chicago Headquarters

I’m a member of our client leadership team and an innovation strategist who often wonders why people bother to listen to innovation "experts" at all, since innovation fails most of the time. With my mentor, Jay Doblin, I co-founded Doblin back in 1981 in order to obsess about this conundrum and both identify the root causes of innovation failure and develop more successful methods for its implementation.

I'm a globally recognized teacher, speaker, writer, thinker, and a fervent champion of the potential impact of a strategic combination of design and business. I have also authored Ten Types of Innovation, the Discipline of Building Breakthroughs (Wiley 2013).
