Strategy of Innovation ? the Topic In today?s business environment Innovation is no longer a matter of wishful thinking but rather a matter of survival. Strategic innovation now is about finding new ways to reach new value and using winning moves to manage the path from inspiration to business impact. It starts with being able to see the options that others do not see. At the ?Strategy of Innovation? Leaders? Summit you will not hear ?drop prices, increase marketing, cut costs.?

The event will enable you to:

  • SEE how Innovation is born, how to strategize on innovation and innovate on strategies
  • EXPLORE how Strategic Innovation blends practices of Industry Foresight, Consumer Insight and Strategic Alignment
  • GRASP methods and tools on combining two seemingly paradoxical mindsets: visionary thinking and down-to-earth implementation activities
  • UNCOVER more plays in your playbook by finding new approaches to continuously re-define and re-discover your competitive advantage
  • OUT-THINK your existing understanding of accomplishment in business
  • BE the first to change the game!
