TRACK Workshop: Opportunity Insight and Roadmapping

Event Type
1 pm - 4 pm

Open Innovation and Contests, Strategic Planning, Continuous Improvement

Unsure where to focus: No shortage of ideas but lack clarity on which to pursue?

Roadmaps turn strategy into action. Learn to move from big opportunities to tangible roadmaps for growth. Opportunity Thinking® led road-mapping brings the organization together to work more effectively and cohesively. This workshop will cover common challenges in organizations and the different ways to overcome those challenges by keeping opportunity as the keystone to growth. Topics include Voice of the Ecosystem, Cross-functional alignment, Agility (and not just in IT), and more.

Unsure where to focus: No shortage of ideas but lack clarity on which to pursue. 
Functional disconnect: Marketing and R&D have unaligned roadmaps for product offers and technologies, leading to slower development times
Jumping to ideas: To act lean organizations jump to ideas missing the bigger opportunity

Voice of the Ecosystem: Use the ecosystem to help you sequence where to invest
Alignment & Speed: Cross-functional alignment on where to focus and how to equip teams with new capabilities 
Agility in Response to Change: Good roadmaps help you pivot as there is a change

Who should attend:

Chief Strategy Officer, Chief Innovation Officer, Innovation leaders, R&D leaders, and anyone who is charged with harnessing innovation and growth.

Pam Henderson, Ph.D. As the CEO and founder of NewEdge, I have been involved in innovation and organizational growth for the past 25 years. I have pioneered NewEdge’s Opportunity Thinking™ approach to innovation that has assisted organizations in creating sustainable growth by focusing on opportunities rather than ideas. I was formerly on the faculty at Carnegie Mellon University and later worked with the US national lab system, VCs, angel investors and Washington State University to commercialize over 200 early stage technologies.     In the spirit of corporate growth, I strongly believe that your company won't grow by 10% if your people aren’t growing by 10%.
