Institutionalizing Innovation: How to Build an Innovative Corporation

Share Article

Praveen Gupta, who helped to develop the discipline of Six-Sigma while at Motorola, in partnership with the nonprofit Scanlon Leadership Network and Scanlon Foundation, will offer his research findings and innovation methods in a workshop on Institutionalizing Innovation in Detroit on September 20, 2005.

Innovation is widely viewed as a key to global competitiveness yet few people have done the necessary research and critical thinking to offer business leaders solutions for institutionalizing innovation in their organizations. In fact institutionalized innovation may appear to some as an oxymoron. Successful business leaders know that if innovation is to thrive in corporations there must be sound theory, methodology, processes and measurement systems to support consistent high quality innovation.

Praveen Gupta's solutions are based on extensive research into the work of great historical innovators such as Einstein, Newton, Galileo, Edison and Ford as well as insights of modern innovators and patent holders in organizations like Motorola, IBM, 3M and Proctor & Gamble. Praveen is a leading authority on Six-Sigma and has authored numerous books on the subject. He is currently editing a book on innovation, which will be published in 2006.

The Scanlon Leadership Network is a nonprofit association of progressive organizations who pioneered many innovative business practices including open-book management, employee involvement, gainsharing, and servant leadership.

The workshop will be held from 9:00-4:00 at the Hilton Garden Inn.
