The Houston Roundtable (October 29, 2019)
focused on upgrading an established innovation program
Whether innovation is pursued as a corporate function or through the business units, there are always gaps and challenges. Markets change, technologies advance, and the practice of innovation itself evolves. This roundtable included innovation leaders from companies in the process of upgrading their innovation system.
Discussion topics included People (culture, leadership, and mindset); Operations (process, governance, and knowledge flow); and Organization (org structure, knowledge networks, and teams). The discussion centered on what’s working, what’s not, and how to gauge your Innovation Maturity Level.
All participants had a chance to pose their own questions to others who are at different points on the journey. Like past roundtables, this event provided a productive opportunity to learn from the innovation community and build valuable, lasting relationships.

We designed the Innovation Roundtable format to be as intimate and personalized as possible. In the innovation management world, the best practices are constantly changing. You need a community of peers where you can meet other leaders and learn from each other.
At our roundtables, there are no Powerpoints, no sales pitches, and no gimmicks. We’ll have three hours of group discussion and dialogue on a key topic of shared importance – and that’s it. We also produce an summary of the learnings to share with both participants and the broader innovation community.
Our roundtables are a trusted networking forum for senior innovation leaders at some of today’s leading companies, including AT&T, BNY Mellon, Bose, Caterpillar, Exelon, ExxonMobil, Mercedes-Benz, PepsiCo, Pfizer, Philips, US Cellular, Whirlpool, and many more.
