Boosting Innovation and Implementing Change in a Highly Regulated Environment

Carlos Herrera  (Senior Program Manager, Johnson & Johnson)

Location: 210A

Date: Wednesday, February 12

Time: 9:45am - 10:30am

Track: MD&M Conference: Driving Next-Gen Design & Innovation Strategies

Vault Recording: TBD

Project teams in organizations often struggle to effectively execute not always due to technical challenges but due to organizational people alignment into execution. The “acceptance” of the technical proposals by who will experience the change is many times more important than the technical change or solution. Boosting innovation elevates these challenges beyond the existing protocols, in order to make change stick. Topics covered include:

  • Practical tips to assure that your technical proposals are adopted
  • Ways to prepare you and your team to be ready, willing and able to execute the change
  • Realizing that the only constant in business is change, better adapt to it and leverage it
  • How to leverage technology, realign a solid team and develop partnerships to boost innovation
