About the session

Big enterprises are complex, cross functional, multi-BU organizations. Coordination and alignment are not easy. Therefore, they are constantly challenged to make the best out of their innovation investments. Resources are limited and the surrounding world is volatile and dynamic. Many factors of different nature play a role and are often conflicting. Modern Innovation Portfolio Management offers processes, decision making methods and governance principles that can help these companies define and implement their innovation strategies efficiently and effectively. This presentation will elucidate important key aspects of these methods, illustrated with practical examples. The session will not specifically focus on startups, small companies, or idea management, but on the evolutionary characteristics of innovation within an enterprise scope.
