Management of Innovation
When you sign up for our excellent newsletter, you don’t just get access to first sight of new talks, invitations to exclusive hangouts with speakers and smart people and all the community goodness, we ask you if there is something we can help you with to help you navigate the over 300 talks from BoS Conference collected over 15 years from some of the smartest people in the industry. We try to find some particularly relevant content to help you think about your challenge.
This is a reply I got recently from a new subscriber:
> So hit reply and let me know the problem you’re trying to solve, and I’ll be in touch with some top advice from some of the software world’s brightest minds.
> Don’t believe me? Put me to the test…
I’ll take you on on that one:
On the topic of the Management of Innovation: Whose role is it in modern businesses, is it concentrated on a particular function or distributed amongst people? Any best practice? Insights?
What do you have in stock? Any interesting speakers in that sphere?
I hope you are well and not coughing.
