VIRTUAL EVENT

Serial Innovators: Manage and Unleash Them for Impact

JANUARY 26, 2021

Welcome

Serial Innovators (SIs) represent hugely untapped potential. They are anonymously embedded in companies and disproportionately drive a company’s innovation pipeline. Importantly, Managers need to proactively partner with SIs to maximize the commercial and organization impact of their innovation. But how do Managers best partner to unleash SIs?

Neil and Nancy worked together as Manager-Technologist partners to deliver the highly successful commercial launch of Olay Regenerist. This early partnership experience provided foundational learnings that each continued to refine and develop across future assignments. Neil will share actionable insights and interventions learned during his career to unleash SIs to deliver breakthrough business results.

Key Learnings:

  • Tangible insights on how to unleash SIs to maximize their impact on the business and the organization.
  • Discussion of challenges (or opportunities) associated with managing SIs and how to overcome them.
  • Perspective on how to institutionalize innovation behavior to increase impact of Serial Innovators.
