Watch an engaging discussion on innovation and how organizations are seeking innovative ways to make their business newly relevant. Every leader is planning for growth, but not all will achieve it. How do you translate strategy into innovation, action, and results?

The extraordinary pace of change in today's business environment is driving companies to rethink their innovation strategies in fundamental ways. Ignore innovation and watch your competitors pass you by. Do it the wrong way, and watch your resources and efficiencies drain away. The bad news is that the ash heap of business history is littered with companies that have failed to innovate at a time when the opportunities for growth were front and center. No need to name names. You know who they are. In the post-crisis economy, innovation has climbed to the top of the CEO agenda as a primary strategy for achieving profitable growth. Is your company innovating to its full potential? Have you thought about your innovation strategy and about how to achieve the growth?

Consistent growth companies set clear, cross-disciplinary objectives. They leverage analytics and high clock speed prototyping to reduce cycle time. And they foster innovation in their culture, technologies and metrics. 

Topics include:

  • Incremental or radical innovation
  • Management or leadership
  • Short-term results or long-term commitment
  • Open innovation or proprietary investment
  • Organic or acquired innovation
  • One innovation process - or two?

Speakers include:

  • Rob Shelton, Managing Director & Innovation Leader, PwC
  • Scott Constance, Principal, PwC
  • Kevin Schwartz, Principal, PwC
