The discipline of Innovation, driving disruptive ideas from concept to execution.

Plenary session 1: The Future of Business
Innovation seems to come naturally to some companies - especially those born in the Mobile Web and the Cloud; it's baked into startups. But what about companies - the majority out there - that have been in business longer than these?

Change your mindset! Think like a startup! Disrupt your design and development processes! Be Agile! - are some of the admonitions they hear. This is often interpreted as a blueprint to shake things up, to tear things down in order to start afresh.

But can innovation spring from chaos? What does it really take to innovate? Not just once, not as a side activity, not only to create concepts and demos - but to build a real innovation engine with which new ideas are taken from the drawing board to execution.
