Michael Dila has a passion for starting things. Whether it’s companies or communities, he has spent much of the last 15 years breaking new ground. He is a leader in design thinking and innovation, with a passion for making both more rigorous and more accessible.
Michael is the founder of UNFINISHED, a transformative new venture in business and design education. He also helped establish the Strategic Innovation Lab at the Ontario College of Art & Design. And he invented and co-developed (with Matthew Milan) Innovation Parkour, a scalable framework for training people in large organizations to become more innovative.
A philosopher by training, Michael’s Ph.D. research examined the social history of how ideas and norms of objectivity are shaped by communities of practice.
