I mentioned in my previous post - Reporting From COFES - that Brad Holtz connects new event attendees with veterans. My COFES mentor was Christian de Neef of Fast Track Consulting. Christian spoke on The Future of Innovation, highlight how companies need to become more open to innovate:
"Companies must understand the new rules of the game because yesterday's recipes for innovation won't work in tomorrow's world. We must stop seeing today's world through yesterday's paradigms; we must learn to open up to the outside world, to work in an environment where there is no clear boundary between partner and competitor."
Here is my video interview with Christian discussing some of the takeaways from his presentation.
