Building a Strategic & Sustainable Innovation Culture – Dr. Gabrielle Bedewi In the past, innovations were primarily associated with the development of new products and technologies. However, strategic innovations that generate ongoing competitive advantage are currently being applied in the development of new service offerings, business models, pricing plans, go-to-market strategies, and new management practices; thus transforming each step of an organization’s value chain. This session will explore several myths related to innovation, illustrate the drivers of sustainable innovation and present examples of practical business innovations that are being implemented for several organizations’ offerings and processes, the customers they serve, and the channels of distribution that are being employed in taking these products and services to market.
