GEA - IMD BUSINESS FORUM 2014

THE GROWTH FACTORY: BUILDING AN INNOVATION ENGINE INSIDE
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.

BUSINESS FORUM GEA - IMD MILAN 2012

"Governance successes and failures around the world" è il tema che verrà sviluppato durante l'annuale business forum organizzato da GEA e IMD. Negli ultimi dieci anni le Aziende familiari hanno ottenuto risultati superiori rispetto ad altre classi di imprese. La sfida del futuro è ora rappresentata dall'integrazione di contributi e professionalità esterne alla famiglia, dal coinvolgimento dei giovani nella gestione - come nuovo "motore" per la ripresa - e dalla presenza al vertice di figure femminili, intesa non tanto come quota di genere, ma come una vera opportunità di business.
