Actionable Strategies for Driving Technology Innovation

Online Training Modules

Top Models to Use Technology Innovation to Drive Revenue

In an age of constant technology change we all understand that innovation is critical to success. While many people focus on how IT strategies can sustain a successful business today, there are also those responsible for answering the question “how are we going to keep the business running in two years time?”. Using an internal research and development team we can create a sustainable balance of creative knowledge growth for the individual, matched with the mutual benefit of future proofing the overall organization. With the unrestrained freedom to explore emerging technologies and without the constraints of today’s corporate development policies your best talent can achieve great things, stay engaged, and ensure future success. In this presentation John and Mark will discuss and demonstrate how a creative “labs” team can lead to short, medium and long term benefits for any business willing to invest in technology.
