We will be featuring a series entitled, “Voices From Last Year” to highlight key themes that BEI Back End of Innovation attendees took away from last year’s event.
BEI is all about the strategy and execution of innovation. It’s a conference where the entire innovation process comes to life- from leadership & organizational structure, to optimizing the idea portfolio, to process and strategy, to commercializing new ideas, ultimately driving bottom line profitability.
At BEI 2012 Dr. Hitendra Patel, Innovation Professor, Hult Founder, IXL-Center, discussed what it takes to be a successful innovator.
Do you agree with Dr. Patel? What do you think are the key characteristics of a successful innovator? Share your thoughts with us!
