There are many models for engaging in corporate venturing and innovation. But how can we expand the models we think of when we think of "strategic partnerships"? And what practices can we engage in so these initiatives aren't conducted as isolated engagements but as ones that can centrally influence the business? Drawing on lessons learned and experiences from PARC today, CEO Steve Hoover will share cases and specific innovation practices we can engage in, particularly for moving ideation to impact, optimizing for timing especially under uncertainty, and for influencing the entire organization.
PARC presented this talk during the "Innovation Storytelling: Nurturing The Seeds of Innovation, Case Study Illustrations" segment at the IBF Corporate Venturing and Innovation Partnering conference on February 7, 2012.
