About the session

Many innovation leaders can report the number of Ideas their internal innovation programs have generated. But if you're under increasing pressure to demonstrate the business ROI of your innovation program, you’re not alone.

Today innovation is not optional for large organizations. But in order to get consistent budget and support for your innovation programs (and drive repeated results), you must be able to credibly demonstrate the ROI.

We recently interviewed Swarm's enterprise customers on how they calculate the ROI of their innovation programs.
We delved into:
- What is the value of finding a more innovative employee?
- Of developing an employee’s innovation capabilities?
- What is the impact of innovation culture on share price? (Or on funding, for government programs?)
- The value of a 10x more transformational proposal?
- Or an innovation proposal moving faster through your stage-gating process?

Join Mary Ann Bianco, former VP at Oracle, and Suzan Briganti, CEO and Founder of Swarm Vision, for a deep dive into calculating innovation ROI in large organizations. You’ll learn: What is the state of the art of innovation ROI measurement? What is known and unknown? And how do some of the world’s most innovative organizations approach innovation ROI?
