Innovation in an Era of Disruption
University of Strathclyde, Glasgow, UK: July 2021
The Coronavirus pandemic of 2019-2020 has shaken the world, as key industry sectors collapsed, supply chains fractured, workplaces shut down, social distancing and quarantine limited freedom of movement. A perfect storm highlighting global economic, business and societal disparities. Crises are threatening as old rules are broken but they create opportunities often accelerating new ways of doing and thinking. This means exploring forces of change, challenging the status quo and mental models. The R&D Management Conference 2021 provided a forum for innovation experts from academe and industry to come together and debate a wide range of topics surrounding innovation management, such as technology, business models, processes, practices, leadership, culture and strategy and many others related to “Innovation in an Era of Disruption.”
