Innovation is such a hot topic of discussion that it can be difficult to determine the next initiatives to undertake to grow the maturity of your innovation program. Join us on November 12th for an enlightening webcast, where we will highlight several innovation trends to consider implementing today for measurable results tomorrow.

Innovation can be a powerful way to help increase revenue, decrease cost, and improve brand recognition. Mastering innovation can also be a career boost to those who are able to capitalize on the latest trends and implement research-proven best practices. But it can be time consuming to determine which changes will help your organization achieve its strategic innovation goals! Instead of scouring the web, monitoring twitter, browsing posts on LinkedIN, reading industry analyst research, and attending innovation conferences, simply attend this live IM Channel One Roundtable Discussion, hosted by Planview to stay ahead of the curve.

Does this sound familiar?

  • “We’re getting ready for 2015 strategic planning and budgeting, but I don’t know which innovation initiatives to approve.”
  • “I don’t have a measurable way to assess my company’s innovation management maturity.”
  • “I’m overwhelmed by the tsunami of data on innovation and struggle to discern fact from fiction.”

If any of these statements resonate, this webcast will be worth your 60-minute commitment.
