Inaugural Business Innovation Conference

SCHAUMBERG, IL, June 18-The inaugural Business Innovation Conference will be held on September 8-10, 2008, in Naperville, IL. The conference will bring academia, government and business together to explore and learn the science of innovation and accelerate performance through innovation, offering attendees the chance to exchange knowledge and experience. The conference will bring innovators, entrepreneurs, engineers and executives to share their methods, challenges and lessons learned, in order to raise the understanding of the innovation process and advance tools to the next level.

There will be 36 sessions and six workshops to choose from over three days. In addition there will be keynote presentations by diverse industry leaders and a recognition dinner for innovators.

In the past, innovation has been considered an art, flash of genius, rare occurrences of brilliance, or expensive and unpredictable. In the 21st century, leaders must master innovation so that they become continual thinkers, capable of innovating on demand for mass customization and sustain profitable growth. This requires a greater understanding of innovation and the standardization of the process for predictable results.
