Building a culture of innovation is at the top of most corporate agendas - a recent PwC survey found that 64 percent of CEOs worldwide think innovation and operational effectiveness are equally important. Balancing operational excellence and innovation drives true success in today’s world, helping to bulletproof your company from disruption. Take Fuji as an example, which thrived in the era of digital photography even as the shrinking film market left Kodak far behind.

Every CIO knows the business value behind building innovation in IT; improving efficiency and aligning IT and business goals. But it's the successful CIO who knows just how to engage the creativity and idea generation needed for true ground-breaking outcomes. Sponsored by AgilityWorks, this interactive Innovation SIG will help you to understand what needs to be done for an innovative culture to thrive in your IT operations and bring real value to your organisation.

What is Innovation?

Agility Works will look at Innovation Culture:

  • Typical barriers to Innovation.
  • Hype vs reality.
  • How to develop an innovation roadmap.
  • How to generate buy-in from the rest of the business.

Agility Works will then look at Exploring the art of the possible.

What are organisations considering/actually doing? hear some typical use cases and find out where SAP technology fits in? This session will look at the key building blocks required for innovation, e.g.

  • U/X
  • Agile methods
  • Business involvement
  • New commercial models
  • Your organisations skills
  • What is the role of the IT department?

Tom Pollock, Head of information management at Northern Gas Networks will be sharing his challenges and experiences and delivering a clients view.

The day will also include:

  • Qualitative and Quantitative
    • How to measure and improve your innovation ideas
  • Bringing it to life
    • From Design to Deployment
    • How to Porotype quickly
