2012 Annual Meeting: Driving Growth, Here, There & Everywhere

25 Presentations 0 Sections

Innovation is a fuel for future growth. Many new drivers are changing the way companies are managing their innovation systems, including the pace of change, availability of talent and a reframing to a new world market. As companies examine these new markets and regions in developing their growth strategies, they are focusing on how they can best manage both the front and execution sides of innovation.

Attendees will gain answers to how companies are managing innovation outside their home country and how companies in other regions (e.g. Europe, Asia) manage innovation for their local and overseas markets. What can we learn from others who are doing things differently? Which companies are looking at and beyond BRIC (Brazil, Russia, India & China) and how is their innovation process different?

Presenters will offer the audience fresh perspectives from organizations and international companies not historically represented in past dialogues and have them share methods, challenges and successes in emerging economies and from different perspectives in the ecosystem.
