Back End of Innovation

SmartOrg will be participating as a sponsor and presenter at BEI:  Back End of Innovation, taking place October 6-8. 2014 at the Cosmopolitan Hotel of Las Vegas.

BEI:  Back End of Innovation is 100% focused on the execution of innovation.  It takes you through the three critical areas that will determine the success of failure of an idea – it starts with the process and metrics, moves to the culture and structure of your organization, and finally ends with the commercialization and launch and integration.  Download the conference brochure.

On Monday, October 6th David Matheson, President and CEO of SmartOrg, will be presenting during the Connecting Innovation with Finance to Drive Profitable Growth learning lab:

At the C-level, you will frequently be asked to approach investments in innovation.  At other levels, you may often find yourself requesting approval and seeking funding for innovation.  Regardless of your position, the potential value to be created by innovation will need to be justified.

During this interactive session, innovation-experienced industry thought leaders will lead a highly interactive experience that will guide you and your peers as you identify and prioritize issues that must be addressed if you are to successfully promote and defend your innovative ideas.

Learn from your peers what works and what doesn’t as you address the inevitable issues around the potential financial value of your innovation.

Joining us at BEI is an all-star line-up, including:

  • John Kao, Best-Selling Author, Innovation Nation
  • Sarah Miller, Caldicott, CEO, Power Patterns of Innovation
