For all companies, innovation is more important than ever. Exponential technologies are evolving at a rapid pace, as is the future of work. The challenge for large enterprises is that in many cases, the very structure of the company thwarts true innovation. Innovation budgets are subject to market swings, earnings reports, middle management meddling and a host of other pressures.

The very definition of an innovation center has morphed into a kind of magic laboratory, filled with cutting edge electronics and spinning out 007-worthy gadgets. They often become product mills, with expectations for success tied to unrealistic metrics. In this session, we will get back to basics and map out strategies for companies to get back on a true innovation path.
