Running A Successful Corporate Innovation Program

By applying a startup approach to product development, corporations can encourage the urgency and agility that is often hard to achieve in large entities. Andritz created artificial intelligence for industrial plant automation using a structured intrapreneurship model, taking the product from concept, through prototype, to winning Goldcorp’s 2019 #DisruptMining contest in under a year. We use this example to discuss the opportunities, challenges, and methods in creating innovative products in established corporations.
