Overcoming the Obstacles to Innovation

Stevens Alliance for Technology Management
Roundtable Meeting Announcement
Tuesday, July 12, 2005, 2:00-5:00 PM Turning Innovation into a Powerful Business Strategy:
The July SATM Roundtable meeting continues our investigation of the general theme of innovation. The February Roundtable meeting began the series with a broad exploration of the principles and processes of innovation, the April meeting focused on leadership for innovation, and the annual Conference in May dealt with innovation as an on-going strategy. Larry Gastwirt of Stevens will open the discussion by reviewing the major impediments to innovation and how they can be surmounted, drawing from the learnings of the earlier meetings and relevant studies. Representatives from ISO and Teknor Apex will share specific experiences with obstacles to innovation in their companies, and how they are being addressed. The meeting will be held at the Infineum USA Technology Center in Linden, NJ. Directions are attached. Dress code is business casual. Please let Sharen Glennon ( sglennon@stevens.edu or 201-216-5381) know the names of attendees.
