Join SIM South Florida for our June 20th Meeting at Nova South Eastern University where special guest speaker Stuart Kippleman will be presenting- Innovate or Die: Creating a Culture of Innovation.
Innovate or Die: The average lifespan of a company listed in the S&P 500 is now only 15 years. Many companies still don’t get it and fail to keep up with change or innovation. This change includes business needs, customer expectations, and technology as nothing is immune. While just keeping up with change is complicated, it’s not enough. We must innovate, and balance the needs of all those involved to drive a business forward and create a competitive advantage. We will discuss the impact of change, technology trends, and pitfalls, how to stay competitive., and ideas to ensure IT drives the business forward.
