Become a Leader!

It is impossible to overstate the importance of producing your product or service efficiently with as little waste as possible. It is the competitive advantage that powers the success of industry leaders.

There isn’t a business that doesn’t want to be more creative. According to a recent study, 75 percent of CEOs from the fastest growing companies claim their single strongest competitive advantage is their unique products and services and the defined business processes that propel them to market – innovation by another name.

The value of innovation is undeniable and profound. Creating a highly sought after product or inventing a process that allows your company to bring its products to market cheaper, faster, or with more quality than your competitors is life sustaining. It is the “leg up” that can catapult a company to the forefront of its industry and keep it there for years.

So how can a company fan the flames of innovation and harvest the fruit resulting from the outpouring of creativity? To best facilitate innovation it is incumbent that all available resources are used and a structure is put in place to support the most efficient mining of those resources. In other words, companies need to apply Lean principles to their research and development efforts.

Lean is synonymous with the elimination of waste and, while most organizations are aware of how Lean strategies may be applied in their production and administrative functions, they are unable to wrap their minds around how these same principles might be applied to the facilitating and harnessing of inspiration which manifests as new innovations.

In this track, we present the findings of our extensive investigation of some of the most innovative companies in the world. We present these findings in a series of linked sessions focusing on Leadership, Strategy, and Tools & Techniques.

Join us in Nashville for this four-day Lean Innovation Symposium and discover techniques to harness your organization's creative thinking.

Innovation can be more than just a competitive advantage; it can manifest as market domination and even create markets where none existed. Innovation is the competitive advantage that powers the success of industry leaders. Become a leader!
