Innovation comes when free thinking is encouraged and expression of these thoughts are collected, collaborated on, reviewed and then decisive outcomes are applied. By allowing your employees, partners, and customers the freedom to think, you are opening your business to unrealized growth and expansion.
Maybe you're setting corporate innovation priorities. Or you're leading a collaboration effort for new product ideas. Or you're shaping the future through customer fedback and market insights. Whatever the specifics, you're helping drive your organization's ability to innovate.
If you're an Innovation Leader, ILF is a don't-miss event. You'll be able to connect with other innovators about the topics that matter most to you.
The best part: You help shape the agenda. Every day until the event we'll host an online ideation event to collaborate on the workshop topics. Then, on the day of the event, you can meet other innovators who are looking to explore the same innovation issues as you.
As you plan your innovation activities for 2012, take advantage of this exciting opportunity to connect with other thought leaders and peers at ILF 2012.
