Imagine yourself in a room full of people who have faced the same challenges as you.  They have struggled to integrate product roadmaps with the innovation portfolio or to communicate the value of open innovation to their companies...and they have overcame these challenges and will show you how they did it. September 16-18, 2015 | Detroit, MI

Member Summit: Climbing to New Peaks in Innovation Performance

Institutionalizing innovation in the organization is akin to a change in DNA.  Deeply ingrained processes, attitudes, standards and expectations create barriers to significant change.  Join more than 300 R&D and innovation professionals at the 2014 IRI Member Summit to explore how to effect change in the organization culture and attract and develop the talent to sustain an innovation culture. This focus will include presentations from leading researchers, case studies from IRI member companies, and IRI developed content to help your organization get started. October 13-16, 2014 | Denver, CO
