Driving innovation - from a strategic point of view
During this breakfast seminar, we are going to dive into the challenges established companies often experience connected to leveraging innovation. We will do this from a strategic/management point of view and talk about how management teams and company leaders can shape i.e vision, structures and measurement systems to enable and enhance, rather than hinder, innovation.
As the ‘speed of change is increasing’ in the world, the competitive landscape changes faster too. This means that companies can no longer survive only by optimizing their current business – they must also constantly reinvent themselves to maintain competitive edge. When established, successful companies’ with ‘perfect processes and structures’ try to reinvent themselves however, the structures they have built tend to become a liability rather than a competitive advantage, maybe even without anyone noticing.
Innovation and optimization have different properties, and we must take this into account when establishing our ways or working with them. This applies for all functions and levels of an organization, but during this event we will focus on the strategic point of view, discussing i.e vision, strategy and measurement systems.
