Behind every great idea there's a battery of work and execution that needs navigating to sell that idea and make it profitable.
BEI will be focusing on the discipline and process of the execution of innovation. The conference covers the breadth of the innovation process--from leadership and organizational structure, optimizing your idea portfolio, the strategy and process of developing the platform for commercializing new ideas and driving bottom line profitability. It's a topic I've been studying and implementing throughout my career. The conference taps into a variety of industry innovations as case studies.
Keynote Speakers -- I plan to interview -- and companies participating include:
Vijay Govindarajan, regarded as one of the world's leading experts on strategy and innovation, professor of International Business at Dartmouth's Tuck School of Business and author of numerous breakthrough books on innovation discovery and delivery (I've read three of them). He's one of the big brains knowing how to turn breakthrough ideas into breakthrough growth.
