Developing Agile Innovation Capabilities
Roundtable on Digital Strategies Publication
Innovation is the lifeblood of corporate growth, providing the new products, services, and business models that keep a company competitive, increase market share, and challenge talented people. Traditionally one of the greatest challenges that companies face is how to capitalize on innovative ideas while running their core operations ever more efficiently. Today the question often is, how can companies innovate intelligently, in a fast-paced environment?
Members of the European and Americas Chapters of the Roundtable on Digital Strategies convened at Chevron’s headquarters in Houston for a day-long discussion of sourcing, nurturing, and managing innovation, including current practices, their challenges, and ideas for how to improve.
Participants in the session included CIOs and innovation leaders from Eaton Corporation, Chevron, Coca-Cola Enterprises, Eastman Chemical Company, Tenaris, and Tetra Pak, along with innovation experts from consultancy Alvarez & Marsal, the Bauer College of Business at the University of Houston, and the Center for Digital Strategies of the Tuck School of Business at Dartmouth College.
