In mid-July, we brought together 10 innovation and R&D leaders from large organizations in Chicago. The gathering was hosted at Hyatt Hotels’ headquarters — known as Hyatt Hub. 

Our roundtables are off-the-record, primarily because they’re designed to enable a group of peers to openly discuss issues they’re grappling with — in this case, related to organizational agility, or a company’s ability to respond to rapid change. Our co-host for the event, PA Consulting, defines five steps on the path to organization agility:

  1. Center on your customer
  2. Speed up time-to-value
  3. Design for simplicity
  4. Build to evolve
  5. Liberate your people.

If you’re a corporate innovation, strategy, or R&D leader and you’d like to join an upcoming roundtable, you can request an invite here. Our next roundtable gatherings will be in Chicago on September 26th and Boston on November 7th.
