Open innovation – a concept that involves capturing ideas in a collaborative hub and outsourcing development to a large group of people or a community – is revolutionising and rapidly transforming the business landscape in all sectors of our economy. This session will explore how ubiquitous connectivity – through the internet, smartphones and embedded sensors – is democratising invention and product development by opening them up to the masses, while consumer choices are greater than ever before. Businesses that fail to embrace open innovation risk being left behind.
We organise the event in cooperation with IMD, which is a top-ranked business school and an expert in developing global leaders through high-impact executive education.
