The last day of the FEI2014 Munich was very inspiring and refreshing. We have seen a great performance from John Bessant and his team from the University of Exeter who made use of an innovative way to transfer their information to the audience: A guitar music and sketch based speech
Two refrains of the performed songs where
Dynamic capability, in innovation has to beand
I'm proud to be a laggard
Though folks might think it's mighty strange
In a world where there's so much progress
I'm the one thing that ain't gonna change!
|Prof. Dr. John Bessant playing guitar|
The second keynote speaker was Gunter Dueck or Wild Duck, former Chief Technology Officer from IBM. In a very entertaining and a little bit satirically way he put the challenges of innovation into a nutshell. He talked about the cheese - bacon problem and stated that
Innovation is not the main topic, but it's the most missed oneand
Innovation attacks the immune system of a companyas well as
There is no innovation in universities, just inventions
|Guenter Dueck or the Wild Duck|
Beside the fact that Dr. Peter Meier, MD of Pamino GmbH and Founding FEI Advisory Board Member, organized a great conference we great speakers, he also made an interesting speech about the Diffusion of Innovation. A lively discussion arose and we all enjoyed the dynamic of the talk. Thanks for that and the great conference!
