Hacking Innovation

Hacking. No, we aren’t hacking into IT systems. We are talking about being highly productive in a pressurized time frame. What does its mean to create a ‘hacker culture’ in a global organization? How can you create a culture of innovation? How can we create impactful innovation programs that lead to something beyond?

These questions will be answered as Angela will go through her personal journey and demonstrate examples of how Schneider Electric in the Pacific Zone has activated and embedded innovation in the organization to make meaningful impact.
