Who Should Come
The subject matter of the Summit is geared to top-level managerial and technical executives that manage entire organizations, departments, and budgets; and programs, teams, and budgets. Numerous companies have brought groups of officers ranging from three to ten in size in their quest to develop an improved and systematic ability to innovate across their employee base.
Directors and leaders of market, technology, product, and IP creation activities will gain a better understanding of the leadership techniques that work, along with the tools and technologies available today that give the best chance to systematically embed innovation in company culture and projects. One size does not fit all. The techniques that might drive a "innovator strategy" product line are different than those for a "balanced portfolio strategy" product line.
Registration for this summit is closed. Please see other upcoming events on our home page.
This Summit will be led by Bradford L. Goldense, an internationally recognized expert on R&D, product development, innovation, and metrics. He will be accompanied by Adam J.

Richard Langevin, co-founder of the Altshuller Institute, who translated much of the original work on TRIZ, will brief us on one of the world's single most powerful innovation tool. Col. John R. [Dick] Power Ret., an expert in program management who launched the world's largest deployed battlefield communication system, will speak on several topics and lead our group exercises.
