Goldense Group, Inc. [GGI] Announces 8th R&D-Product Development Innovation Summit � November 2-4, 2010

NEEDHAM, Mass. — (BUSINESS WIRE) — July 29, 2010 — The ability of executives to direct and manage Innovation in their companies is the focus of the 8th R&D - Product Development Innovation Summit. The Innovation Summit will be held Tue/Wed/Thur November 2-4, 2010 in metro Boston. The Innovation Summit is a fact-based three-day seminar and workshop focused on areas of innovation and intellectual property that are TANGIBLE and ACTIONABLE by corporate leaders.

The 8 Innovation Modules

Our goal is to teach the "Innovation Body Of Knowledge" as it exists today, without putting a spin on the information.  A number of participants have stated, "GGI's Innovation Summit is an Executive MBA on the subject of Innovation." There are 8 Modules.

1. Best Practice Innovation Processes
2. Corporate-Level & Tactical-Level Innovation Drivers
3. Innovation Enablers & Tools: 5 Groups & 50 Items
4. Three Key Innovation Tools & Techniques
5. Semantic Technologies & Knowledge-Enabled Innovation
6. IP Valuation, Management, & Communication For Wall Street
7. Open & Outsourced Innovation Frameworks
8. Innovation Metrics & Rewards

GGI has performed primary research for the past decade in the areas of Innovation, R&D, Product Management, Product Development, and Metrics.  CXO-Level findings will be shared, along with other benchmark studies.  GGI has been in business for 25 years and has advised over 250 companies in these subject areas.

Who Should Come

Our overall approach to the Summit is geared to top-level professionals that manage entire organizations, departments, and budgets. People responsible for technology and product creation activities will learn what is available to systematically embed a culture of innovation.  One size does not fit all.  A "pure innovator" company will pursue a different approach than a company that wishes a "balanced product portfolio."

Summit Faculty

This Summit will be led by Bradford L. Goldense, an internationally recognized expert on R&D, Product Development, Innovation, and Metrics.  He will be accompanied by several senior practitioners and lecturers.  Exercises will be conducted to give participants hands-on experience to facilitate decision making when asking staff to engage in activities to spur systemic innovation.


The conference facility is equidistant between Boston-Logan and Providence-Green [great rates] airport, and won Sheraton's Best-In-Category Award for 2009.
