ICDM Members’ Day: Innovate for Exponential Growth

Boards, once the responsible voices of risk mitigation, are moving forward and advocating for more adoption of innovation practices to stay relevant and ahead of a very competitive landscape of disruption and uncertainty. However, the majority of organisations struggle to understand the impact that innovation can bring.

In this coming Members’ Day, ICDM is delighted to collaborate with RISE to provide insights as well as recommendations for board directors to lead and guide their organisations to accelerate corporate innovation exponentially and sustainably in the disruption era through the discovery of your own organisation’s readiness, stories of successful innovative solutions, and best practices.

To know where your organisation is in terms of corporate innovation readiness, RISE has offered its Corporate Innovation Maturity Model (CIMM), an assessment tool free of charge exclusively to ICDM members. Registered members to the event will receive the link to CIMM and assessment should be done before the event to reap the full benefits.
