Why do growth and innovation programs fail at such an incredible rate? And are logistics and transportation companies at more risk than others? After years of watching great companies routinely shut down their most promising prospects for growth, Grant Wood realized that something critical was missing from how we understand and manage innovation programs. In this session, he will share the reasons innovation programs fail at such a catastrophically high rate, why our best practices are having so little impact and leaving us vulnerable to disruption, and what to do about it. You will leave this session with the ability to see how seemingly harmless (and sometimes encouraged) behavior is undermining our ability to deliver breakthrough innovations.
Grant Wood is known for his broad experience with disruptive innovation and for his work on reconfigurable super-computing, renewable energy, industrial manufacturing, and for having built one of the world’s fastest financial services systems. He brings passion, humor, and a unique perspective to the topic of innovation and has shared his vision with industry groups and private companies internationally. In 2021, for his work on disruption innovation, he was selected by EY to be a Wavespace Luminary.
