Discover how Fortune 500 companies such as P&G, Unilever, Cisco, and AT&T have successfully integrated open innovation strategies to help them improve R&D and augment their business strategies. In a world where knowledge is widely distributed, organizations can no longer afford to simply look within their own walls for innovative ideas. Looking outward for new insights allows companies to dramatically increase their product innovation efforts, and shrink development cycles to a fraction of what they used to be.
World Research Group’s 2nd Annual Open Innovation Summit, to be held on August 11-13, 2010 at the Millennium Knickerbocker Hotel in Chicago, will feature speakers from leading companies, including PepsiCo, Clorox and Johnson & Johnson, as well as workshops designed to help you overcome internal challenges to open innovation and arm you with the tools necessary to implement these strategies. Attendees will learn how to position their organizations as leaders in a revamped competitive landscape, build the business case for open innovation within their organizations, and leverage external assets to create new revenue streams. Besides a solid understanding of how open innovation has helped companies grow and adapt to new business ideologies, attendees will walk away with concrete and tactical plans to implement a successful open innovation strategy.
