Scaling Up: How to Turn Validated Innovation Concepts Into Business Impact

Ultimately, innovation is about creating business impact. To create it, companies need to have great ideas which build on meaningful insights, then validate these ideas, then scale – Industrialize the product or service, make the market and grow the organization.

Almost any company has enough innovation ideas. A majority understands the value of Validation and how it should be conducted. But only a few are excellent in Scaling-Up.

Frank has worked with leading companies on this issue. He has also written the first book on ‘Scaling-Up corporate startups’. In his speech, he will share his insights on the reasons why and how companies can become excellent in Scaling-Up.
