Leading Innovation: Strategies for Growth and Value Creation

Sunnyvale, CA – hosted by Plug & Play Tech Center
April 24-25, 2019
with Soren Kaplan, Jennifer Mueller, and Alec Levenson

Program Agenda

Innovation is now ranked as a top 5 business priority of CEO’s globally, and is essential for corporate survival and outperforming the competition. In today’s disruptive world, every organization must adapt, transform, and innovate.

  • So, how do you think differently and drive the type of organizational transformation that shifts leadership behaviors and culture, resulting in a steady stream of ideas, from incremental to breakthrough?
  • How do you create an environment that promotes freethinking, an entrepreneurial spirit, and sustainable value creation at all levels across all functions of an organization?

When companies make the transition from startup to having established customers, markets, and business processes, the need for focus and discipline ends up dominating all corporate decision making. In those environments, it is more difficult than ever to generate, recognize and implement new ideas that can fuel innovation.

Join us for this two-day workshop to learn how to overcome biases against creativity and improve how innovations are identified, promoted, and integrated into the larger business model and culture.

This workshop provides practical, best practice frameworks to:

  • Identify the trends and disruptions facing your industry and organization
  • Identify the structural organizational barriers to successfully executing innovation
  • Identify and execute new ideas
  • Create a game plan for transforming your organization to get more innovation

In this workshop, you will:

  • Learn how organizational culture can be shaped to foster greater innovation
  • Gain insight into the levers that influence transformation and culture
  • Obtain practical tools for transforming your organization’s business model and culture
  • Instantly apply new knowledge through interactive, facilitated group breakouts.
