Innovation in Operations: Future or Fad?

Post it Notes, iPods, Google Maps and Uber are all examples of innovation we can easily point to in the world around us. But what about when you work for a more traditional company? Is there really space for innovation in a large corporate? Is it expected and valued? What does innovation look like in your world today?

Join NAWO and special guest, Jane Thomson from McKinsey & Company, as we explore the experiences of some of the country’s leading innovators. Together, we will:

  • detail what innovation trends are already happening in operations environments
  • outline what practises are being borrowed from start-ups to generate new ideas in manufacturing, and
  • help to unlock what innovation can look like on the front line.
