The first of these talks will be led by Charles C. Snow is the Mellon Foundation Professor of Business Administration in the Smeal College of Business at Penn State University. He is listed in Who's Who in the Management Sciences, Great Writers on Organizations, and The IEBM Handbook of Management Thinking.
Organisations can struggle to deal with the innovation imperative which pervades products, process, service and networks. New trends of crowdsourcing and social networking are challenging the convention thinking around organising for innovation. In his talk Charles Snow will examine the innovation barriers and challenges and how organisations can respond by building communities of networked firms using continuous innovation, which fulfils the needs for efficient provision of a constant stream of new products, services, and markets. In doing so he will draw on his recent research on Blade.org set up by IBM and on his ground breaking research on collaborative entrepreneurship.
