Events

TEDxPenn

TEDx Penn is having an event on Nov 2. This year, the conference theme is "Creating the Sound," syncing up with Penn's "Year of Sound" programming. The conference will bring together some of the brightest Penn thinkers and doers, each one invited to talk about an idea worth spreading. The speakers will come from a variety of departments, fields of research, and areas of expertise, ranging from undergraduate students to faculty. These talks are not lectures; each one is designed to engage the audience, challenge conventional ideas or practices, and hopefully expand the way that we think. Only 100 students can attend, so apply now if you can! http://tedxpenn.com/#apply   (tickets are $40 if you are invited).

Booz & Company Industry Primer:  "The 2013 Global Innovation 1000 Study:  Navigating the Digital Future"

November 4, 2013, 12:00pm - 1:30pm @ JMHH Room 370

What:  Year after year, Booz & Company's Global Innovation 1000 study has demonstrated that it is not how much companies spend on research and development that determines success-what really matters is how those R&D funds are invested in capabilities, talent, process, and tools. In addition to our recurring analysis of R&D spending trends, our ninth annual study of the world's 1,000 largest publicly listed corporate R&D spenders focuses on the digital enablers of the innovation process: how the most successful companies are-and aren't- using digital tools and processes to improve speed, decrease cost, enhance quality, reduce complexity, and sharpen insight into customer and market needs to improve their innovation efforts.

Richard Holman will be on campus to share insights from this year's study.  Richard is a Florham Park-based Partner with Booz & Company and is an expert on innovation, specifically in new product innovation, product development and product quality.
