Make Innovation Part of your Digitized Strategy | 2:15 – 2:45 pm

with Premal A. Desai, Deputy CEO @ Evolutionizer

Most businesses operate under the assumption that they must either choose between innovation and efficiency. However, this doesn't have to be the case: By integrating innovation management into their business strategy, companies can achieve both objectives simultaneously. In fact, making innovation a more central aspect of your strategy is the best chance to face the challenge of increasingly disruptive environments. From new technologies, new players and completely business models, to the impacts of geopolitical instability and climate change – many organizations face a tomorrow where yesterday’s methods no longer work. But the methods of tomorrow are already here, as Premal A. Desai, Deputy CEO of Evolutionizer, will show you in his presentation. With the support of digitization and a modern approach to innovation management and strategy, businesses can embrace disruption and thrive through innovation.

Peter Russo, Strategic Advisor Evolutionizer

A New Mode of Innovation | 2:50 – 3:20 pm

with Prof. Dr. Peter Russo, Managing Director @ Evonauts

The ability to innovate is one of the most important drivers for sustainable growth – and traditionally an area where most successful corporations excel. But in times of disruption and system breaks, many of these corporations seem to be overwhelmed with the multitude of market shifts and challenges. The problem is rooted in the approach to innovation itself, knows Prof. Dr. Peter Russo. As one of the leading experts in innovation research, he knows that the guiding principle of "Faster, higher, stronger!" may not be enough anymore: Instead of a culture that has been geared towards incremental improvement for decades, organizations must be open for a new mode of innovation – including changes in strategy, leadership, corporate structure and culture.

Use Case: A Single Innovation Process | 3:25 – 3:55 pm

with Veerle Van Wassenhove, Senior VP Group Innovation @ Bekaert

How can a global company with more than 20,000 employees channel and evaluate innovative ideas that might prove vital for the future of its business? How the need for innovation can be balanced against the operative goals of local subdivisions in more than 100 countries all around the world? And how can an industry giant with more than 140 years of history manage the transformation from traditional manufacturer to a technology and service leader that can adapt to megatrends like decarbonization and a smart connected economy? In the use case session, you will hear from Veerle Van Wassenhove, Senior VP Group Innovation @ Bekaert, that these questions for tomorrow can already be answered today – by aligning innovation and day-to-day strategy execution, supported by a digitized approach to innovation management.
