Motorola, Lockheed Martin, Colgate Talk Strategy through Structure

Strive for repeatability. Practice flexibility. That was the message from author Chris Trimble's 2012 BEI: Back End of Innovation keynote.

While everyone strives for a repeatable innovation system, nothing lasts forever - nor should it. You need the idea AND the inspired leader to go beyond that. You need a special team and a special strategy. Join us at the 3rd annual BEI: Back End of Innovation as we explore the intersection of strategy and structure.

Keynote Spotlight:
Execution in Unexplored Territory
  • Vijay Govindarajan, Co-Author, Reverse Innovation and How Stella Saved the Farm, Professor of International Business, Tuck School of Business, Dartmouth College
Widely regarded as one of the world's leading experts on strategy and innovation, Govindarajan illustrates ten rules to help organizations overcome top challenges, and shows how firms must rewire their "organizational DNA" across four main areas: staffing, structure, systems and culture, in order for a promising new venture to succeed. He also spells out the critical role senior executives must play in managing the inevitable tensions He will also reveal where firms go wrong on their journey from idea to execution - and outlines exactly what it takes to build a breakthrough business while sustaining excellence in an existing one.

Joining Vijay at the event is an impressive line-up of speakers dedicated to executing innovation, including: 
  • Maria B. Thompson, Director of Strategy & Innovation, Motorola Solutions, Inc.
  • Lawrence Lee, Senior Director of Strategy, Xerox PARC
  • Kenneth Klimpel, Worldwide Director, Strategic Innovation and Technical Alliances, Colgate-Palmolive
  • Daniela Mielke, VP, Head of Global Strategy, PayPal
  • Celeste Corrado, New Venture Strategy & Innovation Lead, New Ventures, Lockheed Martin

And more. Download the brochure for the full speaker list and session descriptions:
