How Serial Innovators Repeatedly Create Successful Breakthrough Innovations – And How to Manage them Effectively
Serial Innovators are individuals who have conceived ideas that solve important problems for people and organizations, have developed those ideas into breakthrough new products and services, inventing new technologies to do so as needed, and then have guided those products and services through the corporation’s commercialization process and into the market.
This presentation identifies the kinds of individuals who are most likely to become Serial Innovators, discusses the processes by which they successfully and repeatedl create breakthrough innovations and provides advice on how managers in large, mature firms can find, develop and effectively manage them.
