Innovation is Everybody’s Business
Innovation is not the exclusive domain of start-ups and the tech set. It’s everybody’s business and most certainly yours. The future of your business—your organization’s ability to compete, grow, and create value—depends on its ability to innovate. That doesn’t mean waiting for lightning to strike. It means being different, creative, smart, visionary, and risk-taking on a 24/7/365 basis. And it raises all kinds of questions:
How do you put innovation at the heart of your business strategy and culture? Neutralize the obstacles in your organization? Encourage your people to take risks on new ideas? Tune your antenna to spot the next Palm Pilot, iPod, or $7 latte? Find the opportunities in change and the lessons in failure? Incorporate customers in the innovation process?
An innovator’s door is always open to ways of seeing, thinking, and doing that go beyond business as usual. The FORTUNE Innovation Forum is designed to take you through that door and help you find the answers to your questions. It is the conference for innovative thinkers and innovative thinking. A true forum, it is a marketplace for ideas and exchanges of perspective-not just from business and technology but also from aerospace, entertainment, hospitality, medicine, sports, and other disciplines.
