I lead a discussion tomorrow on "Developing an IT Innovation Strategy" at the 7th Annual Minnesota IT Symposium. Here's the blurb.
"In a dynamic and global market, innovation will increasingly become the core determinant of the success or failure of firms. Two questions underlie the development of an innovation strategy within a firm or organization. The first concerns the sources of innovation. The second concerns the sustainability of innovation over time.
Our discussion will focus on developing an IT innovation strategy. In particular, we will consider the processes that must be place in an organization to stimulate and sustain innovation. We will also consider the unique challenges facing IT in enabling organizational innovation. The framework for the discussion will draw upon the latest research on innovation from MIT."
