Patient driven innovation and winning solutions hinge on building and advancing new capability. A clear innovation strategy guides investments and creates a balanced frame for trade-offs between short and longer term priorities.
Mastering program and project execution builds confidence and credibility. Companies that build systematic project management capability and apply it cross-functionally and with partners far outperform their competition.
Culture defines the speed to outcomes and is shaped by the Leaders’ Agenda. When the culture of the organization is misaligned with its strategy, change will be difficult to manage, and execution suffers.
Our latest episode of the Leader’s Agenda features Kenneth Burhop, a lifetime innovator within Life Sciences. Ken recently retired from his position as the Chief Scientific Officer at Integra LifeSciences! Before Integra, Ken worked at Baxter International Inc. as their Global Scientific Lead and VP of R&D cumulatively for 25 years!
Tarja Huuskonen had a chance to sit down with Ken and ask him how he has built innovation agendas in companies both large and small and what advice he has for others trying to develop not just one breakthrough but a pipeline of innovation.
