Is CrowdSourcing Just a Fashion or Can It Truly Deliver Results?
Upcoming Innovation Event: 7th September 2016, Institute of Directors, London, UK
When companies copy each other, they risk driving the profitability out of their industry. How do you avoid the “Me too” trap and find somewhere you can enjoy superior results?
This Forum explores how organisations can use the power of the crowd to effectively drive innovation and change programmes to deliver bottom line results and a return on investment.
It will look beyond the hype to help you decide if crowdsourcing can be a very useful tool for you to use in pursuing innovation and indeed in securing customer, stakeholder and employee engagement.
Mrs. Ana María Llopis, non-executive president at IBEX-35 company DIA Group, ideas4all Founder and CEO, ranked by The Mail 24th on its list of most influential women in the UK in 2005 who will talk us about taking advantage of the collective brain in open innovation thought collaboration of both employees and customers.
Mr. Carlos Alonso, Innovation Director at Banc Sabadell (the 4th Bank in Spain) who will talk about their experience with ideas4all Innovation, as its first customer, through a successful journey which is now seven years old, where they found single ideas producing recurrent profits higher than 2M€ / per year.
Mr. Juan Luis Rodríguez Sánchez del Alamo, Innovation Manager at Repsol, who will talk about their experience with ideas4all Innovation as an outstanding culture integration tool in a diverse multinational environment.
