HYPE is pleased to announce Haydn Shaughnessy as a keynote speaker at the Innovation Managers Forum in Bonn, May 28th-29th 2015: He joins other keynote speakers John Bessant, Jaspar Roos, and Nils Müller, as well as innovation managers from HYPE clients KPMG, Nokia, Airbus, Liberty Global, KONGSBERG, Veolia and Fujitsu.
Haydn will be speaking about a new white paper he's been working on with HYPE, and a selection of HYPE clients, titled: "Creating a New Innovation Dialogue To Meet the Needs of Disruption".
Over the past 12 months the idea of disruption has spread rapidly in the innovation community and the wider business literature. Does the term imply a need for significant change in how innovation managers approach their work or how enterprises deal with disruption? In this White Paper we explore why a new innovation dialogue is needed and how it can be framed for maximum benefit. We will do this against the background of the previous white paper “Growing Adaptive Innovation Through an Innovation Maturity Model”.
You can download the original paper on an Innovation Maturity Model here. The new research paper will be made available to all event attendees.
