Innovation executives from around the world will meet at the 2016 Innovation Leadership Summit, promoted by NineSigma and scheduled for 26–27 April in Atlanta, USA. This year’s edition exposes the ‘fundamental principles that drive success in design thinking and open innovation’. Registration is still open.
The summit’s agenda includes group sessions to learn how to apply Open Design ThinkingTM concepts and methodology. Discussions will be stimulated by keynote speaker Jonathan Wolske, Zappos’s culture evangelist, and representatives from organisations such as BP, Bioastra, Pfizer, Porsche, PepsiCo, Unilever, Genentech, Lockheed Martin and Johnson & Johnson.
The event, which happens every two years, also recognises ‘five of the best and brightest in their field who go above and beyond to promote open innovation’ in their companies. The winners will receive their awards at the event, on 26 April.
