Austin, TX (PRWEB) October 27, 2010
PIPELINE 2010, a new virtual conference on product development, launches November 10 at http://www.PIPELINE2010.com. Chris Trimble, author of Rules for Strategic Innovators - from Idea to Execution and expert on driving innovation in large corporations, will kick off the conference with an in-depth look at the two-part innovation challenge.
“Finding a breakthrough idea isn’t easy, but innovation is more than that. The second step, executing, is a serious challenge for most leading companies,” said Trimble. “Vetting, managing and commercializing a great concept are where the rubber meets the road.”
According to The Boston Consulting Group’s Innovation 2010 report, a large majority of companies named innovation as a top strategic priority for 2010: 72 percent named it as a top three priority for 2010 versus 64 percent in 2009. The trend is clear: Companies coming out of the Great Recession believe innovation in product development is the key for growth in the future.
PIPELINE 2010, a virtual meeting ground for experts and colleagues to promote the knowledge and practices of innovation, product development and product portfolio management, is free to attendees.
The event will feature virtual presentations and offer attendees the opportunity to interact with some of the nation’s leading innovation experts. Hosted by Planview, the market leader in product portfolio management solutions, and sponsored by Siemens, Kalypso, Brightidea and the PDMA, PIPELINE 2010 will cover the process of innovation from inception through to commercialization.
