Event - Collective Disruption: New Partnership & People Models for Breakthrough Innovation (Workshop/Seminar)

This workshop event will take place on December, 1, 2015 at the Conference Board in New York, NY. The event titled Collective Disruption: New Partnership & People Models for Breakthrough Innovation is subtitled, Building Transformative Innovation Capability Through Collaboration. This workshop provides corporate leaders with a framework and tools for organizing and leading breakthrough innovation efforts within mature enterprises that traditionally struggle with risk and uncertainty.
