Sustaining Innovation Requires A Repeatable Business Process

Sebastian and Mark will discuss how Bosch designed and deployed its set of mutually-reinforcing programs to create and spread a culture and a repeatable business process for innovation.

Both cultural change and new processes were required to meet the innovation challenges of a company with more than 400,000 people and a history of more than 130 years, working in countless industry segments across the whole world. They will explore how both urgency and patience are required for lasting change.
