GEA - IMD BUSINESS FORUM 2014
Milan on Thursday, November 13, 2014 at 17:00 at Palazzo Clerici, Via Clerici 5, Milano. With the world changing every moment, there is a need for new groundbreaking innovations and ideas to keep the business sustainable and at par with the changing trends. Yet, successful innovation requires more than market insights and great dreams. IMD Prof. Howard Yu will discuss how leading companies spot opportunities, design solutions, test and learn, and then scale beyond the traditional boundaries. We will discuss also how corporate leaders can effectively mobilize the rest of the organization to act swiftly on real insights, overcoming the binding inertia that plagues many large firms. And, most importantly, we will explore how to build an innovation engine inside your firm. We are delighted to have Antonio Miyakawa, Executive Vice President of Marketing, Style & Product, Luxottica, as our keynote speaker, and who will talk about Innovation in the eyewear business and the meaning of Innovation in Luxottica.
