Power breakfast session: How to empower an Innovative Culture

Most people's idea of a great innovator looks a lot like Steve Jobs. Mercurial and difficult, constantly spouting out a seemingly endless supply of ideas. That may have worked for the famous Apple founder, but it hardly ever works for anyone else. In fact, it is often the hot-shots that stop innovation in it's tracks. Great innovators are not knowledge holders, but knowledge brokers. They build superior networks of information and insight through generosity and a collaborative style. This program introduces the Innovation Pulse, a self assessment tool fashioned after the Apgar test, that was developed in partnership with Proteus International and will help every team up its innovation game.

How to Compete in a New Era of Innovation

For the past few decades, innovation has been driven by the digital revolution, which has rewarded fast and agile organizations. Those that could iterate and adapt on the fly to bring new applications to market could disrupt markets and outmaneuver larger, more established firms. Yet today we are entering a new era of innovation which will be very different from what we have known. As digital technology hits theoretical limits, new computing architectures, such as quantum and neuromorphic computing, are emerging. Nascent technologies in areas like genomics, materials science and artificial intelligence will shift the focus from "moving fast and breaking things" to widening and deepening connections to customers, partners, vendors and open resources. In fact, this shift has already begun and the ability to collaborate is increasingly becoming a key competitive advantage. Today's foremost innovation experts, Greg Satell, explains how to navigate this new era we are about to embark on with compelling stories and detailed accounts from the front lines. If you expect to still be in business ten years from now, this is one keynote you won't want to miss!
