Screen Shot 2016-02-25 at 7.51.47 PMWe’re delighted to invite you to the Innovation & Growth Leadership Summit, on April 25-26, 2016 in Chicago.

This groundbreaking event builds on CoDev, to go beyond Open Innovation.  It’s about innovating BIG (starting small), narrowing in on high-growth opportunities, breaking silos, leveraging technology, keeping costs low, and moving fast.

Our speakers are not celebrities or theorists; they are accomplished industry leaders who know how to make a difference, from companies like BASF, WD40, Smucker’s, Clorox, Sun Products, GOJO Industries, Mondelez, Kimberly-Clark, Accenture, CIMdata, and more. Nor is the conference a string of slide-decks, it is a gathering of real people, from all industries, openly discussing challenges and solutions.

This summit is designed to maximize your time, providing actionable takeaways in two focused days.  The first day is dedicated to strategy, the second to implementation, with a ‘bridge’ keynote session and kickoff reception in between.  (See the agenda).  You may attend just one or both days, and we encourage you to bring your team

This first-of-its-kind Summit is practical and collegial with top level content, but even more personal with more Q&A, hands-on experience, and synthesis.  By participating, you will learn to:

  •     simplify complexity; increase agility and adaptability to ever-changing needs
  •     balance growth objectives with resource constraints -keep motivation high, especially after restructuring
  •     identify and weed out inefficiencies, redirect cost savings toward innovation and growth
  •     expand your ecosystem
  •     improve organizational effectiveness; connect the dots between strategy, processes, people, and tools

Overall, you will come away with valuable new business contacts, benchmarking insights, and the clarity and direction to get things done.
