Session Title: How Innovation Works

What does it take to be a more innovative organization? I talk to business and technology leaders who often say that they want to unlock the innovation in their organization, but they don?t really know where or how to start. This session will help you discover that starting point for yourself and your organization. Come and join me in a conversation about innovation, culture, robots, having fun at work and a lot more.
