Boeing: Organic Innovation

Kevin Meredith, Enterprise Innovation Cell Lead

IDEAS Lectures


Kevin Meredith, Innovation Cell Network Lead at Boeing, joins us to celebrate and explore a century of pioneering innovation and to share a glimpse into the great possibilities of tomorrow. His talk will focus on how organic innovation is fostered at Boeing and is successfully implemented in a large company with a long history of innovation.

Kevin Meredith is responsible for the Boeing Innovation Cells – an organic innovation network of unique environments and driven employees focused on developing a more entrepreneurial culture to rapidly convert ideas into reality. With over ten years of service in a diverse set of program and functional positions, Kevin most recently transitioned out of chief of staff, strategy development and program management roles. He has degrees in industrial and systems engineering from the Rochester Institute of Technology (RIT) and is finishing a Master of Science in Entrepreneurship at Pepperdine University.

The IDEAS Lecture Series charts a dynamic new future for architecture by engaging speakers from a broad range of disciplines. The series looks beyond the field's traditional boundaries and explores topics arising from unexpected quarters—entertainment, automotive, aerospace, and tech industries—in order to explore rapidly emerging new technologies, possibilities for interdisciplinary growth, and the role of Los Angeles in the evolution of architecture. The Architecture and Urban Design IDEAS Lecture Series is generously supported by Paul and Herta Amir.
