Innovation, Breakout 2

Title: Innovation Session title: Innovation: Is it Method or is it Madness?

In recent times, “Innovation” has caught the attention of popular press and media. Innovators are celebrated like folk heroes and academics and journalists are falling all over each other to discover that magic formula/process that will make innovation (and creativity) replicable and common-place.

However, there is this other faction that believes that innovation is an art and innovators are artists, who work with unimagined palettes to create new works that wow the world.

Panel members will share their positions on this spectrum and share insights about their journey on the innovation trail.
