How can companies best harness innovation for new growth? How could roles such as Corporate Brand, Human Resources, R & D, Digital Transformation, Sustainability, and Open Innovation measure their innovation contributions?

The Conference Board has completed the initial phases of a comprehensive project to identify the levers of innovation—and how to better measure their contribution. Building upon the insights of hundreds of members and scores of published research papers, this work sheds new light on the fundamental elements that predict innovation success – which indicates breadth of collaboration is increasingly more important.

Members in these roles and program directors working with these leaders are encouraged to join and become part of the next steps in the research.

Who should attend: Anyone responsible for innovation, either at the corporate or the business-unit level. This program will also be of interest to those who would like to experiment with improved innovation metrics related to products, services, marketing, business models, manufacturing, or R&D, as well as those who want to represent the holistic view of innovation and tailor their messages to their individual industry/firm.
