Professor Stephen Timmons

Most organisations find innovation difficult, particularly spreading new ideas and new ways of working beyond their original home. This is particularly difficult in health care, where, despite a strong track record in original (and sometimes life-saving) innovation, it can take up to 17 years for a new treatment or technology to become widespread.

Researchers at the Centre for Health Innovation, Leadership and Learning (CHILL) in Nottingham University Business School have been studying this problem, and we have learning to share which is applicable to a wide range of organisations. Put simply if you can innovate, and spread innovation in health care, you can innovate anywhere.

About the speaker

Professor Stephen Timmons, Professor of Health Services Management will be talking about what CHILL has learned about how to promote and spread innovation in this most complex environment, and how other kinds of organisations can use these ideas.
