Business Forum - New York, March 2, 2010, 5.30pm - 8.30pm

  Winning at Innovation through Cultural Diversity, New York

American companies have a wealth of cultural diversity – whether they’re doing business just in the U.S. or around the world. But are you using this “free” resource to achieve competitive advantage? Cultural diversity is a key ingredient for innovation. In this session, we’ll identify how to unlock its potential and use cultural diversity for higher performance through innovation.

IMD professor Martha Maznevski will lead this interactive session, graciously supported by the Ambassador Christoph Bubb, Consul General of Switzerland in New York and in collaboration with the alumni club of New York. She will discuss her latest research and work in the field.

Martha Maznevski (Program Director of IMD’s MBA program) runs programs spanning a broad range of organisational behaviour topics, including teams and leadership in global and virtual (distance) contexts, diversity and inclusiveness, and the relationship between organisational and national cultures. She has served as advisor to public and private organisations in North America, Europe and Asia on issues of managing people globally.
