The IRI has sponsored a multiphase study on the management practices associated with Breakthrough innovation that has occurred over three phases and twenty years. This workshop will focus on the learnings of the third phase, Institutionalizing Innovation through People. Participants will be introduced to a framework for designing innovation roles, and the logic behind it. They’ll assess their companies’ Innovation Maturity, with a special emphasis on Talent Management at the Senior, Platform, and Project levels. They’ll learn about specific Innovation roles, and the selection criteria needed to fill them. They’ll assess themselves personally to find their closest fit to these roles. Development and retention mechanisms will also be addressed.

Is your firm trying to figure out what you should be doing in the realm of advances in digital? From Manufacturing, to IoT to Product design to path to market - everything is changing. The answers to where companies should and should not invest differ from firm to firm. The R+D capabilities needed to win will also be specific to your firm. The challenges however, are not. Learn to unravel what your firm should do by taking a counterintuitive approach. Do NOT start with digital. This workshop will teach participants to: " Solve the problem of relevancy by determining how to map the change onto your business. " Solve the challenge of density by creating digestible amounts of information about what is going on. " Solve for impact by designing scary and fairy tales for each element of change. Participants are then able to explore the interactions across the elements of change and discover the digital technologies that will be most relevant and critical to the firm's future. Learn how to turn these insights into a practical roadmap for building the innovation portfolio and R+D capabilities. The workshop is led by Dr. Pam Henderson, CEO, NewEdge and an IRI Subject Matter Expert on Building Long-Term R+D Strategy
