Tips for Governing Innovation

As Lean Startup enters the world of established companies and corporates there are many questions currently left unanswered. The Innovation Practitioner is bogged down with red tape and bureaucracy. The Innovation Manager struggles with measuring progress of her innovation projects – as her current KPIs just doesn’t seem to make sense anymore for this new methodology. And the Innovation Strategist is challenged with aligning all projects as a means for the organisation as a whole to move towards their grand vision.

Dan Toma will provide us with a blueprint of how to manage innovation while executing on core business inside corporates. A critically acclaimed blueprint based on best practice from organizations such as Pearson International, Bosch, Deutsche Telekom and others.
