We are in a new age of creativity – one where data and technology play a bigger role. One where creativity has the opportunity to get us closer to our consumers, at a cultural and a personal level, than at any point in the modern era.  But our creativity has yet to catch up to this new age. Unless our industry adapts, our left brains may not wait and overpower our artistic right brain – leading to a creative world deprived of its potential.  This presentation provides thoughts on maximizing the potential of this new age of creativity.

Boeing, Chief Product Officer

Today our planet is challenged with complex environmental, economic, and social equity issues. Governments, businesses and communities aim at balancing these three often competing issues while maintaining adequate public engagement and development agenda. This calls for a coherent and integrated strategy and collaborative approach to understanding and managing these issues enabled by participatory technology implementation. This highlights the need to provide a complete, end-to-end solution to support development and workflow management to achieve sustainable desired future conditions.

This session will provide a quick overview of the current challenges faced by communities around the globe and will articulate the need and value for an integrated technology implementation approach to achieving sustainability. It will also feature real life examples of how this integrated approach enables various communities to successfully streamline the various project lifecycle components, with accurate and relevant data and more efficient and compatible analytical and visualization capabilities.

KEYNOTE: There Is No "I" in Innovation: Unlocking Power of the Ecosystem to Co-innovate for Fun and Profit

Just like the Internet, not all innovative ideas are born inside the boardroom. To unlock the true potential of your organization, you need to tap into the entire ecosystem. That means partnering and co-innovating with customers, suppliers, academia, communities, nonprofits and employees.

Yet, there's a dangerous tendency to remain insular out of ego and fear, which causes organizations to miss out on the major benefits they would otherwise receive when working with the entire ecosystem.

Drawn from global experience, we will discuss the value that non-traditional ecosystem partnerships can bring to your organization: from employee development, to brand value, from community relationships, to new product introduction and revenue acceleration. We look at case studies around the world to pinpoint the value of co-innovation across different organizations and verticals, and discuss creating win-win relationships to create new measurable value for everyone.
