Just as a human body, companies are born and bred with the sole purpose to grow and survive. It’s as natural for the human body to protect itself from disease as it is for the living corporation to protect itself from disruption. And as much as we may joke about the existence of corporate antibodies that stifle innovation, there is more than a germ of truth in that analogy. White blood cells, organ rejection, self-preservation, all exist, and are killing off internal innovation as the corporate bodies themselves head full-speed into the tar pits of extinction. Darwin was right.
“It is not the strongest of the species that survives, nor the most intelligent, but rather the one most adaptable to change.” - Charles Darwin
Dave will discuss the challenges facing true innovators in the midst of corporate culture, along with tactical tips and tricks to overcome the white blood cells designed to seek out and destroy business innovation. He is the author of the provocative new book, The Innovator’s Extinction, and comes to the world of innovation through a long career of creating and launching multiple new businesses and products, both within large multinational corporations as well as within startups.
Dave was recently the Managing Director of New Growth Businesses and Head of Global Cloud Business, for SingTel, Southeast Asia’s largest and most successful telecommunications company reaching over 460 million broadband, wireless, and digital TV subscribers across 25 countries. Dave was responsible for driving new businesses and service innovations with a focus on anywhere, anytime, anything experiences. He previously led digital media transformations at LG Electronics where he was Global Vice President, Content & Services, at Motorola Mobility as Senior Director, Mobile Media & Entertainment, and as the original founder of Roxio, the company that revolutionized the music and CD recording industries.
