Innvation carries with it a series of challenges and fantasies. Large groups have continuously to adapt to technological change
and market expectations. The management of innovation cannot however result from some kind of improvisation. It requires specific processes and
specific competences. The dynamics of innovation result from the alchemy between tangible and intangible assets. It relates to strategic drivers,
the corporate culture, and the ability of executives or managers to share a vision throughout the company.
The report 'Innover en entreprise: de l'incantation à l'action" (issued in Feb. 2017) is the outcome of an expert group organized by the Institut de l'Entreprise (Paris) at the Observatoire de l'Innovation in 2015-2016 and facilitated by Valerie Merindol (newPIC, PSB), Erell Thevenon Poullenec (Head of research at the Institut de l'Entreprise) and Barthelemy Kiss (Artomatrix). The expert group has gathered 30 people from large companies. The sessions (held from Nov. 2015 to Jun. 2016) have shared returns on experience and best practices on innovation. The main focus of the sessions always related to a dialog between large companies and startups, in order to investigate how startups can support large groups in the innovation process. The sessions were complemented by a series of interviews carried out by Valerie Merindol in the industry.
The expert group aims at investigating the new paradigms of innovation in reference to established industrial players
(with a focus on large groups), and to newcomers associated with digital economics. The expert group is organized by the Institut de l'Entreprise (Paris).
It is headed by Christophe de MAISTRE (CEO, Siemens France), and facilitated by François GUERIN (special advisor to the CEO, Siemens France).
