Back End of Innovation '13 wrapped up after three days of great workshops, presentations and site visits.
It was a great conference, one of the best I've attended in the last decade--beyond traditional presentations, the incorporation of the site visits at Xerox Parc, PayPal and Intuit, plus, the all day workshops offering hands on, deep dives into the process of executing Innovation are true innovations applied to the conference format.
Real, consequential information was presented, ready to be applied by the participants. Great mix of industries represented by senior executives, consultants, and innovation practioners. Really a value if you're in the business of, interested in, or looking for innovation. Be sure to attend next year's #BEI14 and the upcoming Front End of Innovation FEI.
