Paul Williams, Executive Director, American Institute for Innovation Excellence
In many organizations, there is a gap between executive-mandated product strategy and the day-to-day operational decisions that take place as the mandate cascades down. Simply put, there is a gap between what should be done and what does get done.
As this strategic mandate cascades down the management chain, busy executives focused on their own priorities, try to minimize "change panic" or force fit into existing structures and processes rather than create new operational approaches. The result: abandoning a bold new strategic vision for something safe and completely ineffectual.
Join Paul Williams of the American Institute for Innovation Excellence as he addresses the root causes for this innovation-execution disconnect and recommends processes, tools, techniques and management approaches to bridge this gap.
