The Innovation Challenge -One can no longer dispute that we are now in an Age of Disruption. Change is happening at a pace and in a way never seen before. Corporate Executives can no longer ignore it thinking that their successors will deal with it. The future is now, the status quo is no longer an option! To many, innovation embodies risk and are adverse to it. Others see it as a way to convert opportunities into realities. This session will highlight where Canada stands is the realm of innovation and how this industry is performing. It will highlight roles and responsibilities and the means by which industry stakeholders can, individually and together, embrace change and reap the benefits. Some very specific examples will be used to demonstrate how this can be achieved. It is very clear that a new mindset/culture is needed for this industry to begin/maximize its journey of innovation; there will be a need to redefine the industry in such areas as: technology, methods, processes, products and systems adoption as well as practices (procurement).
