10th R&D-Product Development Innovation Summit
This Summit will provide participants with a comprehensive look at the Innovation Body of Knowledge for product strategy, marketing, R&D, development, and commercialization functions. There will be an emphasis on top management enablers and techniques to create and embed systematic corporate innovation. Primary and secondary industry research on innovation and measurement tools, techniques, and metrics are used throughout the Summit.
Our first goal will be to codify the current management science of innovation in corporations for our participants. The Summit will synthesize both what is known and what actually works in companies. Our approach will be as factual and quantitative as possible for the subject matter. We constantly refresh the Summit and its Coursebook. There will be four interactive exercises so everyone samples some key techniques they might some day oversee.
The ability of top managers and professionals to direct and manage Innovation in their companies is the focus of the 10th R&D-Product Development Innovation Summit
The Innovation Summit is a fact and data driven three-day seminar and workshop focused on the select areas of innovation and intellectual property that are tangible and actionable by corporations and their management team.
Our quantitative approach to innovation in R&D, Product Development, and Product Commercialization activities emphasizes benchmarking both current performance and leading trends regarding issues that top professionals have to deal with and the decisions that they have to make. For example, do you know which activities and techniques your company currently uses that contribute the most to innovation versus those that simply improve execution? Technical Feasibility Analysis is one of the six most innovative techniques! For example, do you know that there are over 250 available tools and techniques your company could choose to deploy that would likely increase overall creativity and innovativeness? And, that there are about 50 tools worth considering. Some actually increase domain knowledge!
