Dr. Eddowes shares how Open Innovation evolved when Kraft Foods acquired Cadbury; highlighting the original differences in the ways of working, organizational structures and culture and what it has taken to ensure that the new Kraft has not just kept the best of both but strived to be better than both. Dr. Godfroid reviews the mission, goals, and hurdles of Pepsico Advanced Research; providing insight into this relatively new organization and its evolving approach to drive innovation throughout Pepsico.
