About the Live Web Cast June 1 at 15.00 (CET)

Many organizations today have Innovation as one of their key business drivers – however few of them can really claim that they are successful at it. It seems as if everyone dreams of being Apple, only to wind-up as something far less interesting. In this live online session IMD professor Bill Fischer will draw on examples from the over 500 participants who have participated in the Driving Strategic Innovation program that IMD hosts in alliance with MIT’s Sloan school. He will consider the challenges facing the aspiring innovator and offer some key insights that might lead to more effective innovation.

The seminar will be broadcasted live on June 1 between 15:00- approximately 15.40 (CET, central European time). As a participant you will be able to hear Professor Fischer share his latest research and ideas through video and PowerPoint. You will also be able to ask questions via live chat.
