The Stevens Venture Center Speaker Series presents Leonard Heflich, board of directors president at The Center for Food Integrity, food safety consultant and member of TraceGains Advisory Council. He is a visionary leader in the global food industry, focusing on risk management, business assessment, development of strategic capabilities and practical compliance. His areas of expertise include food safety and Food Safety Modernization Act (FSMA) compliance, leadership coaching, risk assessment and management and strong innovation.
This presentation shows how to use strong innovation to develop winning, persistent and profitable products, services, systems and businesses. Innovation is more than just a driver of change, it is a strategic capability that must be intentionally and persistently developed in our companies and in ourselves. Weak innovation techniques are undirected, random, black-box activities that create incremental change that is of low value and easy for competitors to duplicate. Strong innovation is a vision-directed, organized process that allows us to go beyond the state of the art to create value that is difficult to copy.
Pizza will be served.
