Organizations who are striving for mastery in global innovation have one challenge in common: effective collaboration across cultures and functions. If you’re responsible for international programs, products, or services, how are you facilitating innovation and collaboration around the world? The inability of leaders to facilitate multicultural collaboration can affect innovation in terms of concept design, strategic planning, marketing, operational efficiency, customer connection and sales performance in international markets.

Join us for the latest insights on leading and facilitating innovation in our global, culturally diverse, and networked environment. You will learn about findings from a new book on Leading Global Innovation, including the key collaboration drivers and success stories from multinational firms based in North America, Europe, and Asia.
