Operating at the intersection of learning, change, creativity and innovation, Janice Francisco brings clarity and decisive navigation to help organizations respond to change and integrate innovation.

Janice builds teams of “innovation champions” who understand the value innovation brings to the organization, and have the eagerness, confidence, skills and creativity to drive results.

As a researcher, Janice focuses on improving innovation outcomes in organizations. To do that she developed the ThinkUP Innovation Framework™ and the Innovative Instructional Systems Design™ model used in BridgePoint Effect’s training programs.  In 2018 Janice partnered with FourSight LLC and Innov8rs to run a global research study designed to answer “who are the innovators in organizations?”, the results of which will be revealed in early 2019.

She speaks internationally on applied creativity and innovation management, has developed expertise on building innovation cultures within government, and is Chair of the Conference Board of Canada’s Council on Innovation and Commercialization.
