Day One Innovation, LLC was established in 2021 to help organizations innovate better. Trent Gillespie, Chief Innovation Officer, has over 20 years' technology leadership experience in multiple industries, and most recently almost 9 years' experience leading global innovation projects at Amazon.
Our journey to innovate better started with creating an innovation framework based upon Amazon's most successful organizational practices. We have found these practices, such as Working Backwards, work best when modified to an organization's unique needs, and deployed to the organization in a structured way to drive the right adoption and results. We continually refine our framework to incorporate other innovation best practices and our learnings from implementation projects.
We offer organizations and individuals training through our Innovate Like (or Better than) Amazon workshop. In conjunction, we also provide Implementation, Business, and Technology Consulting to guide organizations on their innovation journey.
