On September 19 and 20, 2016, 25 people met in Chicago to discuss, debate and share ideas on the state of corporate innovation and its future. By everyone’s account, it was a unique opportunity for corporate innovation leaders to meet with their peers to delve deeply into aspects of innovation beyond the soundbites and platitudes common in most innovation events. The Summit consisted of four main segments.
As you can see – not your normal innovation event.
In addition to these activities we also had the privilege of hearing from two invited participants:
Julie Steele – Chairperson of the World Future Society gave a dinner address where she talked about the role that futuring can play to enhance corporate knowledge and understanding.
Gina O’Connor – Professor of Marketing & Innovation Management and Associate Dean for Academic Affairs at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute’s Lally School of Management, gave a talk about her research into corporate innovation systems and the organization, roles, and responsibilities that companies will need to be successful in the future.
All this plus a great evening of fine food and lively discussion made for a truly memorable event. Stay tuned for information about next year’s summit. You won’t want to miss it.
