Innovative thinking 2010

Great ideas by great minds

Deloitte held an internal “Innovative thinking” contest that invited our Canadian practitioners to submit papers about innovative solutions to business issues. This resulted in an incredible array of thought-provoking leadership papers that will help organizations tackle major issues affecting multiple industry sectors. Many of Deloitte’s brightest minds from our Financial advisory, Enterprise risk and Consulting practices worked together to create a wide range of unique perspectives on topics like funding for higher educational institutions, governments in deficit, strengthening food safety, and more.

Let us share our ideas with you. Read the winning papers and watch the video.
