In the last three decades, U.S. and European economies have experienced off-shoring of manufacturing to China, outsourcing to India, and the movement of agriculture to Latin America. This phenomenon has forced companies to engage in R&D, strategic planning and invest in innovation to grow their businesses and compete in an international marketplace, whether it be in the technology industry or manufacturing. Companies are now aware that hidden in their dispersed, global operations is a treasure trove of ideas and capabilities for innovation. But it’s proving harder than expected to unearth those ideas or exploit those capabilities in a global environment.

How can firms manage the process of innovation with globally dispersed teams working in a highly integrated world? Join us for a discussion focused on global innovation trends, challenges and leveraging people, processes and systems to stay ahead.
