Encouraging Innovation in an Established Product Culture

Speaker: Richard Cardran, Chief Creative Officer and VP Strategy, HIA Technologies

Innovation is both a process and an outcome. The place to begin innovating your products and services is by first bringing innovation to your internal process. We'll explore the innovation process including the challenges, solutions, and hands-on techniques for becoming a successful "agent of change" within a well-established product culture.
