About the session

Idea management is dead. Employee-driven Innovation should not be an idea submission beauty contest. And then what? It is all about execution. What innovation managers need today is an innovation ecosystem that enables every employee to take an active role in the company's innovation process: submitting, validating and executing their own ideas. Bottom-up innovation should focus on gathering customer data, implementing promising ideas and killing ideas without potential early, fast and cheap. Learn how to unleash the full potential of your employees and turn them into the CEOs of their ideas!
