Interaction Associates to Host LeaderLens Forum on Innovation and Entrepreneurship
Boston, July 28, 2014. The strategic benefits of integrating entrepreneurship and innovation to help drive strong business results is the focus of an Interaction Associates LeaderLens Forum on September 4, 2014.
Interaction Associates is a leading innovator of methods and tools that help people — including leaders, teams, and change agents — collaborate to achieve superior business results.
LeaderLens Forums are designed as half-day immersion events focused on critical business issues and challenges. The September 4th LeaderLens Forum will feature noted authors and business influencers Len Schlesinger of Harvard Business School, entrepreneurship expert Charlie Kiefer, and Interaction Associates innovation thought leader, Justin Jones.
"We are convening this unique event to gather a number of C-level business and line leaders - along with their HR partners - to examine this important issue: How to develop and integrate the principles and methods familiar to entrepreneurs to drive innovation and execution," said Linda Stewart, CEO of Interaction Associates.
"Our specific focus is on exploring new thinking and best practices around entrepreneurship and innovation for success in today's marketplaces - which are increasingly global, decentralized, ambiguous, and often boundary-less," added Stewart.
The September 4th LeaderLens will draw executives from a wide range of global companies of various sizes and across business sectors.
The facilitators and experts that will lead the session include: Leonard Schlesinger, former president of Babson College and current Baker Foundation Professor of Business Administration at Harvard Business School. Charles Kiefer, President of Innovation Associates, Inc. and a prominent thought leader on innovation methods; and Justin Jones, a senior consultant at IA and thought leader on methods that help organizations collaborate to innovate. Kiefer and Schlesinger's article, How Internal Entrepreneurs Can Deal With Friendly Fire, was published this month on the online Harvard Business Review blog.
