About the session

The acceleration of digital business brought on by the pandemic and the changes to the world of work have created some unique challenges for global business seeking to innovate effectively across a distributed workforce.

How do you create and control effective, scalable innovation networks across your employees, partners, suppliers, customers and beyond to solve today's problems and harness tomorrow's opportunities?

Simon Hill has some insights from Wazoku’s global clients on how they’re embracing these challenges.

“All organisations need to innovate, solve problems and generate new ideas to meet objectives. The transformational change, however, is accomplished through the remaking of the organization into the Challenge Driven Enterprise, where the most difficult problems can be solved, effort is aligned with strategic goals, all talent inside and outside of the organization is brought to bear to deliver on the mission, and sustained performance improvement is possible.”
