About this Keynote

Most companies want to become more innovative. Their challenge is that innovation cannot thrive in businesses with linear and rational forms of management. Innovation is a wicked problem; the wickedness isn’t just about difficulty. Innovation challenges are a totally different class of problem, often hard to define and with no single best solution. These characteristics defy all forms of rational management. This talk will describe the nature of innovation's wickedness and present the different ways to manage the innovation process.
