Webcast Replay: Innovation and the Business Units
Innovation Leader editor Scott Kirsner shares some of the high-level data from our recent survey and research report on the ties between business units and innovation or R&D groups.
He’s joined by executives from Fidelity Investments, Aon Health, GOJO Industries, and Trek Bicycle, who share their perspectives.
“We borrow resources pretty extensively from the business,” says Jim Winkler, Chief Innovation Officer at Aon Health. “People rotate through my team in an informal fashion, and I more formally grab percentages of peoples’ time who are in the business. Someone might be a client facing healthcare consultant, but spend 25 percent of their time on my team working on a particular concept or solution that we’re building out.”
