Contrary to the conventional wisdom, innovation not only can be inspired, it can be managed and measured. “We are looking forward to our presentation and moderating of the hot topic discussions,” says InnovationOne founder Dr. Brooke Dobni. “Our long-standing research, and benchmarking with the Fortune 1000 clearly shows that when leaders set a focus area for innovation, invest in it, build a collaborative culture, establish knowledge management systems, and align their process to bring new innovation to the market place, they enjoy higher financial performance and create competitive advantage in their industries.”

Ed Colby and Victor Assad, Managing Partners of InnovationOne, will be presenting “Innovate or Die: Measuring- Managing Innovation Culture for Sustainable Competitiveness,” at ISPIM.  Ed Colby will also moderate the Monday hot topic discussion, “Can Innovation Truly be Measured?” Victor Assad will moderate the Monday hot topic discussion, “Does Workforce Demographic Composition have any Impact on Innovative Capability?”
