HSATM 21st Annual Conference
Thursday, June 21, 2012 – ( 9:00 am to 4:00 pm )
Location: Babbio Atrium & Babbio 122
Novel Approaches to Innovation
Innovation has come to be recognized as the principal engine driving business and national growth. As stated in Business Week, “Economists and business leaders across the political spectrum are slowly coming to an agreement: Innovation is the best — and maybe the only — way the U.S. can get out of its economic hole.”
Responding to this imperative, organizations are introducing novel techniques that are revolutionizing the way innovation is occurring. Many of the creative new approaches are being spurred by the connectivity and accessibility opportunities brought about by the Web. Some of the new methods are proving to be especially valuable. Leading companies are embracing open collaboration, internally and in the marketplace. They are learning to successfully innovate outside their traditional core areas. They are introducing new methodologies to detect trends earlier. They are adopting the comprehensive approach of design thinking, resulting in many important new products and services by focusing primarily on the experience of the customer.
The 2012 HSATM conference will examine creative new techniques that leading organizations are adopting to transform their approach to innovation, compressing timeframes and enriching outcomes. Attendees will come away with guidance on new tools their organizations can use to accelerate innovation. The Conference will appeal to people working in R&D, marketing, business development, operations, project management, customer service, technology — in short, to everyone concerned with creating value through the implementation of new knowledge and ideas.
