Emergent Innovation

As the global environment becomes increasingly competitive, it is vital that organizations seek innovative ways of growing and improving. However, in most organizations, innovation has been unsuccessful and currently, only about 6% of CEOs are doing anything related to innovation. So, how do you initiate successful innovation within your organization? Join Drs. Bruce Winston and Gary Oster as they discuss a new paradigm for effectively developing innovation within an organization, how it works and how to find and recruit those “invisible innovators” within your organization to garner future success.
