Strive
for repeatability. Practice flexibility. That was the message from author Chris
Trimble's 2012 BEI: Back End of Innovation keynote.

While everyone strives for a repeatable innovation system, nothing lasts
forever - nor should it. You need the idea AND the inspired leader to go beyond
that. You need a special team and a special strategy. Join us at the 3rd annual
BEI: Back End of Innovation as we explore
the intersection of strategy and structure.

Keynote

Widely
regarded as one of the world's leading experts on strategy and innovation,
Govindarajan illustrates ten rules to help organizations overcome top
challenges, and shows how firms must rewire their "organizational
DNA" across four main areas: staffing, structure, systems and culture, in
order for a promising new venture to succeed. He also spells out the critical
role senior executives must play in managing the inevitable tensions He will
also reveal where firms go wrong on their journey from idea to execution - and
outlines exactly what it takes to build a breakthrough business while
sustaining excellence in an existing one.
