For this technical online session we will once again be teaming up with experts from Chamber member Axis Corporate. Senior experts from their team will share their methodological approach and advice for implementation of innovation processes and operational practices in any company.
Enrique and Sonia will centralise the discussion on the 5 key stages to successfully achieving the goal of implementing innovation as a process: Strategy, Organisation, Operation, Governance and Deployment.
Although not all companies have the necessary capabilities and resources to develop innovation at its highest level, as in any other process, innovation also has levels below the maximum maturity level. These are “progressive steps” and are as valid as they are necessary along the path to excellence in innovation. The speakers will therefore discuss what the minimum valid innovation process should be, as an initial level for a company that wishes to begin along the path to real, systematic and cost-effective innovation, whatever its size.
DATE: Tuesday 29th June, 10:30 – 11:30 BST / 11:30 – 12:30 CEST
During the session you will have the chance to ask any questions that you might have to the speakers.
