TRACK Workshop: Talent Management for Breakthrough Innovation

Event Type
1 pm - 4:30 pm

Employee Innovation, Organizational Vision, Talent Management, Culture

While breakthroughs occasionally succeed due to championing behavior, it doesn’t happen often enough for established companies to rely on to secure their future. The fact is, a number of abilities are required for Breakthrough Innovations (BI) to make it from the lab to the market. The purpose of this course is for participants to understand the talent management practices necessary to support the company’s breakthrough innovation objectives, beyond invention. Role definition, challenges to innovation careers, and approaches to selection, development and retention will be covered.

The goal is to move from a champion model towards a perspective that recognizes New Business Creation as a discipline and expertise.

• Introduction and Expectations

• Necessary conditions for a sustainable Breakthrough Innovation Capability: Your company’s BI Maturity.

• Challenges Experienced by New Business Creation Personnel

• Introducing a Framework for Innovation roles

• Assess your organization’s Innovation Role Coverage

• Selecting, Developing and Retaining New Business Creation Talent.

• Understand the necessary conditions for an organization to sustain a breakthrough innovation capability, and assess your organization’s current status

• Gain exposure to a suite of innovation roles that will support an organizational capability for breakthrough innovation.

• Assess the extent to which the work to be done for breakthrough innovation success is covered within their organizations

• Consider ways to continually strengthen the Breakthrough Innovation talent bench.

Who should attend: R&D Leaders, New Business Creation/New Business Development, and Organizational Development professionals seeking to enhance their company’s ability to move Breakthrough inventions out of the lab and into the market.
