Innovating Corporate Innovation

Managing innovation is one of the big challenges organizations face when they have reached a certain maturity stage and want to grow or reinvent themselves. We know that “exploiting” the present requires a different mind- and capability set as “exploring” future opportunities. And we know about the fallacies of “innovation theater” – the hackathons, pitch-me sessions, or agile sprints that often remain empty exercises. How can we make sustainable innovation happen, especially in large companies?

Hosted by CFFO Chairman Roland Deiser, a mix of prominent thought and practice leaders explore these questions in an unscripted dialogue. They are

  • Valery Yakubovich | Executive Director of the Mack Institute for Innovation Management, Wharton School of Business
  • Michael Nichols |  Director of Corporate Ventures | MANN+HUMMEL, formerly head of Bosch Innovation Consulting
  • Andrew Binns |  Director, Change Logic | Author of Corporate Explorer and Corporate Explorer Field Book
Complementing this conversation is Issue #43 of Developing Leaders Quarterly (DLQ) – a booklet series co-published by CFFO. Two participants of this Round Table have contributed as authors to this issue which focuses on Innovating Innovation. You can read their articles here: A transcript of the session is available in the publication section of this website.
