We are sure you will concur with our research, which has shown that companies get the importance of innovation but more importantly, realise, now, that the cross-functional responsibilities and business processes to drive sustainable culture, competence and processes need to change to effectively apply innovation to either, reduce costs or increase market share and in turn your profits.

Simon Hill, CEO, Wazoku and recent winner of the UK Guardian Small Business Leader of the Year, highlights; “ Those of us in the innovation industry have watched the results of big companies and noticed the initial excitement which soon becomes sceptical after engagement levels drop following big launches. The whole process needs to fit into the way your business operates.” See Simon Hill at THE INNOLIVE CONFERENCE in association with Fast Company SA.

Companies that succeed at creating value deliberately re-design their IT, finance, HR, product and customer interventions to make innovation produce significant business value and are mindful of the following:

  • Appropriate compensation and recognition systems
  • Relevant IT platforms to manage and measure innovation
  • Leadership culture priorities
  • Line management responsibilities & accountabilities
  • Customer centric product development & service delivery
  • Budgeting and finance essentials
  • Employee engagement sustainability
  • Recruitment and development requirements

The Innolive 2 day conference addresses just that; with a multi-streamed programme packed with local and international case studies, to provide value to all decision makers involved in their organisation’s innovation agenda including:

CEO’s | CFO’s | Heads of Strategy & Innovation | CIO’s | Human Capital & Talent Management Professionals | R & D Engineers | Corporate Entrepreneurs | Organisational Design Professionals | Product Development & Customer Service Delivery Managers and Process Managers & Executives in both the Private and Public Sectors.
