Tool for Hypothesis-driven experimentation and innovation

When you launch innovation activities or projects, you never have a perfectly clear understanding of the outcome and output. You never know in detail, if your activities are worth the effort, and thus it’s hard to justify the funding and resources allocation. How can you claim, that the investment will be fruitful?

Special: Second day of Global Peter Drucker Forum 2017

Special: First day of Global Peter Drucker Forum 2017

One minute later, Thomas is eager to get the attention back on stage, but the buzz is to loud. It takes him a couple of attempts before the attention is back, as everyone, including us, were already deeply invested in the topic of the conference: Growth and inclusive prosperity.

This is a blog special about what we heard, learned and was inspired by at the Global Peter Drucker Forum 2017.
