Business Model Innovation:
A Goodyear Case Study
Business model innovation is important for bringing new innovation to market, but also for capturing value from innovative technology. Alliances and partnerships are an important part of the process. Jim will discuss the approach to business model innovation – from customer insight to incubation – that is used at Goodyear. The practice that they use is customer-centered, systematic and data-based. It includes a systematic way of bringing the outside in. He will use an example from the commercial truck tire business to illustrate the approach.
Rather than a traditional presentation, this webinar will be an interactive conversation with CoDev Conference Chair, Cheryl Perkins, who will talk with Jim Euchner and explore Goodyear’s experiences with Business Model Innovation.
This is a complimentary webinar – no fee to attend.
