“Hey HR, can we get a little help here?” Large, mature organizations have a history of stopping and starting when it comes to building capabilities for breakthrough innovation. On average these attempts last 4 or 5 years. Patience wears thin and breakthroughs don’t come soon enough. Join us on September 10 from 1:00pm to 2:00pm for a webcast about how to tackle these pain points.
This webinar — hosted by Babson’s Gina O’Connor and Andrew Corbett (right) — is based upon nearly three decades of experience. Research shows companies can do much better if they understand and internalize specific organizational capabilities required for breakthrough innovation success. To build the necessary organizational expertise companies need to introduce a permanent function for strategic innovation, and institute roles that will execute the Discovery, Incubation and Acceleration capabilities required to ensure a vibrant portfolio of options for the company’s future.
In this session, O’Connor and Andrew Corbett will describe the challenges corporate innovators have faced in their careers and offer suggestions for how companies can dramatically improve their selection, development and retention of truly breakthrough innovators, and their organization’s expertise as a result.
