The Innovator's Opportunity: Building The Business Of The Future!
Join the Cincinnati Region of NEW for an afternoon with Douglas Merrill, Former Google CIO.
You're at a successful company. You make a great product, and people are buying it. Congratulations. But do you know where your next successful product comes from? Most companies don't. Some companies are counting on their current product growing indefinitely. In fact, the whole notion of focusing on your "core" and ignoring "context" assumes that your core will grow indefinitely. However, most companies face the Innovator's Dilemma: How do we build a new product in an already successful company?
Innovation and product development in these companies requires structural change, new kinds of employees, incentive shifts, and management fortitude. But, if a company gets it right, it can capture the Innovator's Opportunity: Building a new product in the safety of a stable company. Building on research from RAND, consulting to the world's largest companies in the US and internationally, his experience at Google, and lessons from his own start-ups, Merrill describes proven methods for creating the Innovator's Opportunity.
