Not only do the presentations enhance business perspectives of IT staff, but they give me a reason to interact personally with the executive in helping him or her prepare for the presentation.”

Agenda

  • How can you build and sustain relationships with peers necessary to fulfill the expected demand-side roles, enabling top-line growth?

  • How can you leverage networks to identify innovative solutions that drive top-line growth?


Leveraging networks to identify innovative solutions that drive top line growth

Leveraging Networks to Identify Innovative Solutions that Drive Top-Line Growth

  • Why Do You Need to Leverage Networks Beyond Your Firm?

    • There are many more ideas and smart people outside your firm than you can ever hope to hire.

    • Customers and partners have knowledge and expertise waiting to be harnessed.

    • Large firms find it difficult to do cost-effective innovation.

    • The global talent pool dwarfs the talent in developed markets.

    • Emerging market talent is cheaper and more motivated.


Leveraging networks to identify innovative solutions that drive top line growth1

Leveraging Networks to Identify Innovative Solutions that Drive Top-Line Growth

  • “We want to grow efficiently. With our size, it’s just not possible to do it all yourself. And even if it was it’d be lunacy to attempt. Even if we could, it would be expensive. There are just too many smart people out there. And so we’ve been able to increase our innovative output while reducing our spending as a percent of sales because we’re multiplying it by all the people we’re partnering with.”Tom Crepe (Assoc Director, EBD group, P&G)

  • “It’s clear that we need to be much more open, access talent from wherever it exists, and in the strategic areas that we are trying to drive, make sure that we are constantly scanning technology and bringing in anything that is going to enhance our ability to grow faster.”Uma Chowdhry (SVP and CTO, DuPont)
