ESADE Alumni is pleased to invite you to this talk in the Refresher Programme entitled “How to innovate if you are not Google” by Alfons Cornella (ADE 94), academic assistant at ESADE, founder and CEO of Infonomia and Instituto Next. Author of the book "Como innovar sin ser Google".
Where is innovation heading?
What lessons have been learnt in recent decades?
What works well and what doesn’t?
Is it just about creativity?
How can the results of innovation be measured?
We are always hearing about innovation in big companies such as Google, Amazon, Apple and 3M, but medium-sized companies might have need innovation more and have more opportunities to innovate.
After 25 years in Infonomia and Instituto Next guiding organisations along the road to innovation, Alfons Cornella has written Como innovar sin ser Google, a veritable handbook about innovation for normal companies, which he will present at this event.
