Innovators have shaped the world we live in. Their drive, ideas and creations have brought about things others considered impossible.
In our series “Voices From Last Year” we have been highlighting key themes that BEI Back End of Innovation attendees took away from last year’s event. At BEI 2012 Brian Romansky, Director, New Business Opportunities, Pitney Bowes, discusses the characteristics of what you should look for in an innovator.
There is no set of characteristics that by itself determines who will be an innovator, but many accomplished innovators share certain traits. Finding the people with the right skills is a major challenge for any business, so how do you spot these people, and how do you harness their ideas?

This year, 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. We hope to see you there!
