THINK 13: Innovations’ Necessity and Limits Are Outlined
CHICAGO — Both the need to innovate and the possible pitfalls of doing so were on the minds of executives attending CO-OP Financial Services THINK 2013 conference last week.
More than 550 credit union industry executives from 329 credit unions, CUSOs and other firms attended the meeting at the Swissotel April 29 through May 2.
Two afternoon speakers, David Robertson and Nicole Clemens, described ways that unregulated or managed innovation or inauthentic innovation can be hazardous to an organization.
David Robertson is professor of practice at The Wharton School at the University of Pennsylvania and author of a forthcoming book, “Brick by Brick: How Lego Rewrote the Rules of Innovation and Conquered the Global Toy Industry.”
