Objectives
• Why should you lead innovation within your company?
• What should you do to encourage innovation?
• How do you harness the power of innovation to increase your company’s value and minimize risk?

Description
Innovation is a central element of business growth strategy within companies that aim to generate added value for their customers, the company itself, and other stakeholders. While many company executives and business leaders agree that in order for their companies to survive today’s increasingly global marketplace, they must face the unpleasant truth that there may have to be fundamental changes in who they are, what they do, and how they do it. Few executives feel their companies are good at the specific processes and tactics frequently tied to successful innovation, such as generating breakthrough ideas, selecting the right ideas, prototyping, and developing business cases. We will provide insights to help you define and implement a process to drive innovation within your company using a sustainable approach to ignite business growth.

The speaker will discuss how you can leverage innovation as a resource to help shape a better future for your company’s growth and your career. These insights will help you increase creativity, nurture collaboration and lead activities to transform innovation to profit. He will identify the value of innovation, methodologies, and concrete steps you can take to foster innovation within your company.

Who Should Attend
This discussion is for entrepreneurs, business owners, company executives and senior managers who want to increase their company’s value and accelerate their professional careers by leading product innovation efforts.

  • In their March 19, 2012 issue, FORTUNE magazine named the 50 most admired companies. The Most Admired list is the definitive report card on corporate reputations. Our survey partners at Hay Group started with approximately 1,400 companies: the Fortune 1,000 (the 1,000 largest U.S. companies ranked by revenue), non-U.S. companies in Fortune’s Global 500 database with revenue of $10 billion or more, and the top foreign companies operating in the U.S.They then sorted the companies by industry and selected the 15 largest for each international industry and the 10 largest for each U.S. industry. A total of 698 companies from 32 countries were surveyed. (Due to an insufficient response rate, the results for 11 companies in the scientific, photographic, and control equipment industry were not published. In addition, due to the distribution of responses, only the aggregate scores and ranks for the 10 companies in the oil and gas equipment/services industry were published.) To create the 58 industry lists, Hay asked executives, directors, and analysts to rate companies in their own industry on nine criteria, from investment value to social responsibility. This year only the best are listed in the magazine: A company's score must rank in the top half of its industry survey. Online, all companies' results are displayed. To arrive at the top 50 Most Admired Companies overall, the Hay Group asked 3,855 executives, directors, and securities analysts who had responded to the industry surveys to select the 10 companies they admired most. They chose from a list made up of the companies that ranked in the top 25% in last year's surveys, plus those that finished in the top 20% of their industry. Anyone could vote for any company in any industry. The difference in the voting rolls is why some results can seem anomalous -- for example, although FedEx is one of the top 10 Most Admired Companies, it is second in the Delivery industry behind top-ranked UPS, which ranked 29th on the top 50 overall.
  • Recommended Reading:Harvard Business Review April 2004The Ambidextrous Organizationby Charles A. O’Reilly III and Michael L. TushmanThe Roman god Janus had two sets of eyes—one pair focusing on what lay behind, the other on what lay ahead. General managers and corporate executives should be able to relate. They, too, must constantly look backward, attending to the products and processes of the past, while also gazing forward, preparing for the innovations that will define the future.

  • Here we show AIPMM’s Product Management Framework. It depicts the typical phases for products throughout their life cycle from cradle to grave.It contain elements that apply across all industries and all companies and can also be adapted to create customized frameworks to address unique needs of specific industries and companies.It defines a standard set of inputs, processes and outputs that can be applied to any product.It provides a solid foundation for both implementing and evaluating a product management organization in a company.
  • Here we show how the innovation process can be integrated with the Product Management process by aligning the phases of each process.Many innovative companies use anthropologists to discover unarticulated customer needs.We at AIPMM have our own Anthropologist to conduct research and discover unarticulated needs from prospective target customers. This can be done through non-invasive scientific observation. The discovery process requires discipline and a formalized process.The most innovative companies have teams of anthropologists within their market research teams to discover and gather unarticulated customer needs.
  • A business model is a framework that describes the rationale of how an organization creates, captures and deliversvalue to customers,shareholders and employees.The business model creation process is part of business strategy.Business models are used to describe and classify businesses. They are also used by managers inside companies to explore possibilities forfuture development.

Upcoming Product Management Talk Hakan Kilic, Product Management Expert, Leads Global Product Management Talk Discussion on Centralized vs. Decentralized Product Management [Register] Date: Monday, July 16, 2012 Follow: http://www.blogtalkradio.com/prodmgmttalk Tweet: Follow @ProdMgmtTalk Use #ProdMgmtTalk A discussion of what every executive should know about organizational structures in product management: how do we better align our product teams with our business and development units to drive growth? It’s a tough challenge, and one that executives try to address by deciding on whether the product management team reports to an enterprise management team, or an individual General Manager/Business Unit leader. On one hand, you can drive a corporate wide strategy and optimize development investments across your entire portfolio. On the other hand, you can get deep vertical expertise to drive change that really moves the needle for a specific business.© AIPMM 2012
