Uber Drivers Need Not Apply

Innovation in Traditional Manufacturing. Oxymoron or Business Reality?

Post it Notes, Ipods, Google Maps and Uber are all examples of innovation we can easily point to. But what about when you work for a traditional manufacturer? Is there space for innovation? Is it expected and valued? What does innovation look like? And how does one ensure the resume stays relevant?

Join Jane Thomson from McKinsey & Company as she shares her extensive experience, working with some of the country’s leading innovators, to:

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

After hearing the theory, then learn about the practise, as Thea Jackson  shares her personal experience of driving innovation at Caltex Refinery.
