Back End of Innovation

Back End of Innovation is a conference focused on the execution of innovation strategy. It’s where the entire innovation process comes to life – from leadership & organizational structure, to optimizing the idea portfolio, to process and strategy, to commercializing new ideas, ultimately driving bottom line profitability.

Accelerate your innovation aptitude in Silicon Valley at the Hyatt Regency from November 18th through 20th by starting your work with a full day interactive workshop “Failing Forward:  The Key to Success!”  Your innovation thought leaders have succeeded and failed many times and will guide you to new insight on solving your innovation challenges.

During the workshop you will learn how to create value by failing:

  • Create inexpensive experiments that produce results
  • Create an environment where failure equals progress
  • Pivot through failure and move forward
  • Make uncertainty work for you.

Your mentors for this session will be David Matheson, President and CEO of SmartOrg; Rich Duncombe, Innovation Catalyst of HP; Eric McAfee, Serial Entrepreneur, Venture Capitalist and CEO of Aemetis and Ricardo dos Santos of K + S Ranch Consulting.
