Five hundred Chief Technology Officers must know something about innovation! That is the premise of this Discovery Event: to share the lessons of innovation learned from the more than 500 CTOs who have attended the Driving Strategic Innovation program partnership between IMD and MIT's Sloan School of Management. The result of our engaging in an ongoing dialog with these managers has been a rich set of insights into how the art and science of innovation are evolving as a result of fundamental changes in the business environment.


· The changing domain of innovative activity along the value-chain: from single site, single organization, and single culture innovators to increasingly multi-site, multi-organization and multi-cultural innovation partnerships;
· What it takes to successfully "jump" the technological S-curves that define industry change;
· Developing a new host of relationships with early adopters/lead users that help innovators see further into the future, sooner;
· Understanding the importance of developing innovative capabilities and executing on them to achieve the aspirations;
· The role of the successful innovation leader, both in team and organizational roles
