About this Event

Organisations that focus on providing products with upgrades every now and again to mass market acceptance levels tend to enjoy mere marginal or no growth.

In fact, a PwC study, “Breakthrough Innovation and Growth”, found that innovation is a key driver of organic growth for all types of companies, regardless of sector or geography. It concluded that companies that make innovation a part of their overall strategy will enjoy substantial returns.

Even a severe global economic outlook is no reason (or excuse) for companies to shy from innovation on the grounds of heightened competition. Innovation must be an ongoing process.

Since innovation is an indispensable ingredient to the success of a company, this session provides a simple and clear five-step approach for innovation success.
