Session Description:

Innovation is critical for business growth. A recent survey by McKinsey & Company showed that 84% of executives agree innovation is critical for their growth strategy, while only 6% are satisfied with the outcome of their innovation performance. One main challenge is the lack of a flexible, yet structured, and enabling environment. This webcast will discuss simple approaches that Emerson put in place to build successful disruptive innovations: enabling culture, integrated framework and well-defined processes.
