Her tenth, RE:Think Innovation busts the myth that innovation is something that requires a specific degree or special training. in fact, Carla explains why, to be a successful company in today's hyper-competitive, customer-driven world, innovation must be everyone's business. Her goal is to teach one million people how to become innovators by 2025.

    You need to be able to create space for innovation to happen within your organization.
    Innovation is inefficient, it often involves failure.
    Great innovation makes others jealous they didn't come up with that idea.

    Ep.4 The Rise of the R&D CEO with Scott Amyx

    This episode will look at the rise of the R&D-minded CEO, and leadership that is now taking more personal responsibility for directing and inspiring innovation as it becomes an ever more vital element of business survival and success. Today's guest is the Author of How your CEO makes or breaks your innovation, Scott Amyx. 
    Key Moments From Scott's Interview
    -R&D is no longer a line item within the organization, it's a symbol of survival and growth.
    -The road to becoming obsolete for organizations that are not innovating could be 3 years or less.
    -Jack Dorsey, Elon Musk, and Jensen Huang are examples of the R&D CEO.
    -The CEO role has a statistically significant impact on the level of a company's R&D investment.
    -CEOs need to learn how to be storytellers of their technical solutions and they can only do that with an R&D orientation.

    Ep.3 The Future of Digital R&D - Improving the Innovation Process with AI

    Ep.3 The Future of Digital R&D - Improving the Innovation Process with AI

    Today we’re welcoming Kevin See, Vice President of Research for Lux Research, a leading provider of tech-enabled research and advisory solutions, helping their clients achieve growth through technology innovation. In his role as VP, Research, Kevin leads the digital research team, focused on the emergence of digital technologies and applications in use cases ranging from Industry 4.0 to digital health and the future consumer. Here, he leads a team of analysts, sets content and go to market strategy, and supports strategic initiatives of clients. During his career at Lux, he has served as an analyst and managed multiple teams in the renewable energy space before launching research areas in AI, robotics, sensors, and the Internet of Things, ultimately leading to managing a broader research program around Digital Transformation.

    Key Moments From Kevin See's Interview

    -The impact of AI is being felt in the later stages of the innovation funnel.

    - Some large corporations are experimenting with topic modeling and NPL in the front end of the lifecycle, primarily in the drug discovery space; but overall, covid-19 hasn’t really been an accelerant of digital R&D.

    -Data science is finding a foothold in the manufacturing sector, supply chain, and in the CPG world where AI is being used to better understand customers and those insights are trickling back into the innovation flow.

    - The vast majority of companies are not well-positioned to leverage the amount of data they have.

    - The smartest approach is to pinpoint the problem you want AI to solve, and to look for small wins first, "nail it before you scale it."

    Ep.2 Intangible asset classes and IP as the most critical asset class

    Ep.2 Intangible asset classes and IP as the most critical asset class

    Summary: This episode will explore the intangible asset classes that are driving company values up, the rise of IP-based transactions, and strategies for companies seeking to maximize the value of their intellectual capital. Today's guest is Dr. James Gregory.

    About James

    Dr. Gregory is a leading expert on corporate brand management and developer of breakthrough strategies to measure, value, and manage intangible assets to improve a corporation's financial performance.

    Most notable of the tools that Jim has developed is the CoreBrand Index® (CBI), a quantitative research vehicle that continuously tracks the reputations and financial performances of over 800 publicly traded companies in 50 industries. This pioneering work is utilized at the board level to evaluate current and project future potential corporate performance.  Dr. Gregory is a senior fellow at The Conference Board, where he is leading a task force entitled, "Making Intangibles Tangible."

    Key Moments From Dr. James Gregory's Interview


    The CoreBrand Index (CBI) is a quantitative, longitudinal research study that started in 1990, designed to be a management tool for CEOs, not to drive market cap.

    The CBI considers the perspective of outside, impartial observers (business execs, high volume consumers from outside the industry), in four key areas - overall reputation, perception of management, investment potential, and culture of innovation.

    Patents and trademarks are one of the few things that show up periodically on a company's balance sheet or in their annual report, as a subjective measurement.

    The events of COVID-19 have increased the value of R&D and the growth of intangible assets as an asset class.

    Brand and marketing will never be a part of generally accepted accounting principles; instead, they need to develop very simple systems for understanding their value and reporting it on a consistent basis.

    Ep.1 The future of the stage-gate process - 2020 and beyond

    Ep.1 The future of the stage-gate process - 2020 and beyond

    This episode will look at the stage-gate process invented by world-renowned researcher and writer, Dr. Robert Cooper, and examine whether it still holds up in today’s climate of innovation and what processes and frameworks will shape the future of innovation.

    About Bob

    Dr. Robert G. Cooper is the creator of the world-famous Stage-Gate® process, and was named the “World’s Top Innovation Management Scholar” by the prestigious U.S. Journal of Product Innovation Management and is a Fellow of the Product Development and Management Association (PDMA). He has combined practical consulting with ground-breaking research for many years. Besides his best-selling books “Winning at New Products” and “Portfolio Management for New Products”, he has published more than 130 articles on R&D and innovation management.

    Key Moments From Bob Cooper's Interview


    Stage-gate was based on what entrepreneurs or "intrapreneurs" inside companies did in order to take an idea and launch it into a successful new product. 
    With the world changing so quickly, Bob starting borrowing concepts from the software world, namely the agile development methodologies. Ala Agile Stage-gate was born. 
    Get out there and talk to customers. That is the difference between winning and losing.
    With new technologies being implemented and developed it is important that we don't get so mesmerized by this possibility that we starting thinking everything is great. 
    Only 1 out of 4 projects that are approved for development become a commercial success. Portfolio management and a good gaining process will help you there.
