Online Webinar

The Coronavirus pandemic has impacted every aspect of our lives and businesses. There is no clear pathway to the future, intensifying the need to innovate, despite significant barriers.

In this webinar, Professor Simon Mosey, explores the barriers to innovation - lack of time, lack of capability, inappropriate bureaucracy and fear of failure and shares examples from the NHS, digital start-ups and large corporates of how these can be overcome. In an interactive format, Simon shares practical tips, grounded in theory and built from research that managers can use today to realise innovation within their own activities and within the projects that they are responsible for.
