CoDev is celebrating a decade of innovation! The 10th annual conference on Co-Development and Open Innovation: Accessing Networks & Knowledge to Create Business Value is happening right now in Scottsdale, Ariz., and I could not be more excited. This year more than 250 of us are convening in the brand new Talking Stick Resort.
This morning we’re diving in to workshops, including one that my colleagues Jeff Lindsay and Pat Clusman are leading with me titled, Building the Open Innovation Pyramid.
One of the popular featured of CoDev is the community of innovators we build through social media. The ideas will flow from our attendees for months to come through shared videos, the forum, blogs, groups, a live chat and meet-ups.
Who is here with me? chief technology officers, vice presidents, managers, and directors of Open Innovation, plus a host of specialists in innovation, product development, R&D, continuous improvement, engineering, manufacturing, and more from a cross section of industries including aerospace, food and beverage, medical devices, consumer goods, pharmaceuticals, biotech, oil & gas, electronics, hi-tech, defense and more.
