As I explained in my blog post last week, I think the business world needs a bit more intrapreneurial spirit to fuel growth and gain a competitive advantage. I’ll be taking more about how to achieve this with the right software and culture at the upcoming Intrapreneurship Conference in London from the 27th-29th May. But I’m not the only person with an opinion speaking at the event so I’ve listed the top 3 keynote speakers that I think attendees, and the business world at large, should be taking note of!
- How Intuit got its innovation Mojo back – Trisha Rassatt, Senior Marketing Manager & Innovation Catalyst at cloud accounting company Intuit will be talking about she lead the company through its famous Lean StartIN program. Prior to doing so the company of 8,300 people was struggling with lagging customer satisfaction, low employee engagement and slow product growth. Issues I’m sure all of you have been able to relate to at some point professionally. Since implementing the programme, these issues have been resolved and Forbes cited Intuit as one of the most innovative to watch.
Day One – 27th May, 16:35-18:00, Wayra
- Measuring the performance of innovation is something I hear many innovation leaders talk about. CEOs are naturally putting more and more pressure on those leading these inspiring programmes to prove their value. Vidar Andersen, a founding principle at Andersen & Associates, will be talking about his experience guiding F500 companies through tracking and measuring the performance of innovation. I’m particularly interested to hear how he uses the Innovation Readiness Level, Launchpad Central and online data-tracking to do so.
Day Two – 28th May, 09.05-09.30, The Crystal
- How the wrong digital tools can affect your intrapreneurship strategy is obviously an issue particularly close to my heart as I founded Wazoku with the precise intention of enabling organisations to tap into the collective intelligence and intrapreneurial spirit of their staff. Nick de Mey, co-founder of the Board of Innovation, will be analysing how to avoid the wrong tools, find the right ones and combine them with the appropriate management and culture to ensure innovation spreads like wildfire.
Day Two – 28th May, 11.35-13.00, The Crystal
