Slides from my presentation at 33rd Degree conference.
Many companies from software industry deal with the problem of maintaining its innovative character over the course of time, especially after achieving bigger size and the maturity. Innovation is difficult (or impossible) to measure and calculate its ROI. However losing innovation means sooner or later the end of the business.
So some of the big bosses of big corporations even cry - “Innovation happens elsewhere” - or simply conclude that maintaining innovation is only possible via ongoing acquisitions of smaller, still innovative companies. We witness it very frequently.
Wojtek will share his insights about which values, rules and practices one can foster or apply in a software company (of any size) to let its employees implement their most ambitious and crazy dreams which is the key to the innovation.
