Annual Meeting 2012 - Accelerating Conventional Innovation

Accelerating Conventional Innovation
What are the stall points that slow innovation? In November 2011 the working group conducted a survey to obtain snapshots of stall points and improvements made to development processes to eliminate stalls and accelerate innovation. The group is now exploring how companies have identified stalls and eliminated them from future projects. The objective is to develop a database of stall elimination stories for IRI member use.
