Innovating Beyond The R&D Lab: Realizing Trapped Value Across The Eight Dimensions Of Innovation
When we say "innovation" we almost always mean "product innovation." We talk about research & development and possible new solutions to meet unmet needs. This is a one-dimensional and incomplete approach to innovation. Dissect the most innovative companies of the last decade and you will see that great innovators disrupt their markets by reaching beyond the product. Oftentimes their success rests on choices that have little to do with new products.
In this presentation, learn how companies that outperform their competition seek disruptive innovation across eight dimensions– The 8Ps – Price, Product, Promotion, Place, Position, Process, Physical Experience, People. Kaihan Krippendorff, one of the top 8 innovation thinkers in the world (Thinkers50) and author of Outthink the Competition and Driving Innovation from Within will take you through engaging examples of the 8 dimensions to search for an innovative strategy. Cross-industry examples such as Urban Outfitters in apparel, IKEA in furniture, VMware in technology, SpaceX in space launch vehicles, Mastercard in payments, and Vistaprint in printing services, show how the "8Ps" framework is a powerful structure to engage strategists, HR, operators, marketers and/or sales staff in an exploration of where competitive advantages lie, where to strengthen them, and where they are being underutilized.
Be The Disruptor, Not The Disrupted
We are experiencing a historic acceleration in the pace of change in our world. Artificial intelligence, digitization, robotics, millennials and gen Z, 3D printing, social shifts, and the rise of purpose-driven enterprises are reconfiguring how every conceivable industry operates.
These changes divide us into two camps: the "Disruptors" and the "Disrupted".
Successful entrepreneur, author, consultant and CEO Kaihan Krippendorff has spent over a decade studying the patterns of disruption. What makes some companies thrive and what makes others fall behind? What gives some the power to shape the future and makes others struggle to keep up? Kaihan has applied his cutting-edge findings to create more than $2.5B in new value and help hundreds of businesses lean into change and thrive in tomorrow's fast-paced, digital, purpose-driven world. In this talk, Kaihan breaks down the underlying patterns of disruption and with compelling stories of successes, failures, and yet-unknown innovations, teaches practical tools to help you take action and become a Disruptor.
The Purpose Path: Building A Mission-Oriented Organization That Harnesses The Power Of Csr And A Do-Good Strategy
Historically, we were taught corporations existed for one purpose: to maximize shareholder value. But companies are waking up to the realization that such a focus destroys shareholder value over the long term because it creates resistance to your growth.
If you design a strategy that benefits shareholders by also benefiting employees, the community, the country, and the environment, you have designed the ultimate strategy. When everyone wants you to win, you remove all competition. This idea goes beyond social responsibility. It points us toward removing the idea that doing good and making profit are inconsistent. You do not have to choose.
By pulling together inspiring stories from organizations ranging from lesser-known jewels like Best Doctors, BrightFarms, and Holstee to leading socially directed corporations like IKEA, Mastercard, and Target, Kaihan will inspire and motivate the audience to rethink their role and how they interact with stakeholders, not just shareholders.
