About the session

Somehow we thought (hoped) after Covid, we would go back to normal. Yet the reality is that we find ourselves in many different crises all happening at once. Of course, this impacts our day to day as innovation teams. In this context, with lots of uncertainty at many levels, what do we focus on, and how do we deliver the best and most possible value to our organizations? Join this conversation with senior innovation leaders Greg and Louise to hear their perspectives.
