CI and innovation are two powerful tools that firms can use to grow their businesses. Unfortunately, many fail to understand the critical link between them. This presentation will explain the logic of CI and the dynamics of innovation to show how they can work together to drive growth.
Dr. Jay Paap, a CI practitioner for over three decades, will lead the presentation. Jay is a highly demanded speaker who regularly presents on innovation and CI to executive audiences around the world. The message of this presentation is simple and clear: Any organization wanting to innovate needs to recognize the central role of CI.
