Episode Description

The buzz: Innovating. Innovation is more critical to your business success than ever. That’s why enterprise leaders want to shift it from an art to a teachable business discipline with predictable outcomes. Can structured vs. informal innovation approaches create a sustainable learning culture? The experts speak. Jeremy Cox, Ovum: “When we think about innovation, we think of people with some spark of genius who are able to see things that mere mortals like us fail to see.”

Claus von Riegen, SAP: “The reason why it is so difficult for existing firms to capitalize on disruptive innovations is that their processes and their business model that make them good at the existing business actually make them bad at competing for the disruption.” (Clayton Christensen)

Marco Cigaina, SAP: “Everything changes and nothing remains still...and...you cannot step twice into the same stream.” (Heraclitus)
