How do we accelerate our pace of innovation to push past competitors, while developing products and services to meet customer needs, improving the speed, capacity and impact of innovation efforts and generating a fundamental change in organizational culture? Insigniam, a leading international management consulting firm, will help clients and colleagues discover new opportunities from shared insights into the common elements of great performance from the experiences of executives from a range of industries and disciplines at their exclusive 2013 Insigniam Executive Summit, to be held May 14-15 in Philadelphia.
Roger L. Martin, Dean of Rotman School of Management at the University of Toronto and noted advisor, writer and designer, will deliver the keynote session on design thinking and the culture of innovation. The Summit will also feature a hands-on applied workshop in design thinking featuring Jeremy Utley, Director of Executive Education at the acclaimed “d.school,” Stanford University’s Institute of Design.
“The theme of our summit this year is ‘An Immersion in Design Thinking,’” says Shideh Sedgh Bina, one of Insigniam’s founding partners. “Innovation is a key driver for success in today’s enterprises, yet our 2013 Executive Sentiment Survey revealed that only 15% of executives feel their organizations are prepared to execute on the needed levels of innovation. Design thinking’s collaborative and creative approach can be leveraged to improve enterprise performance and inspire innovative practices. We intend that attendees will walk away with the insights they need to generate breakthrough results in their own businesses.”
