Vancouver Corporate Innovation Group

Running a Successful Corporate Innovation Program

Event details

Session Summary

In this session, we had Arthur Gooch, Andritz’ Director of Innovation, present how Andritz’ internal innovation program has helped drive and support his team to winning Goldcorp’s 2019 #DisruptMining contest from a product that was conceptualized internally. We had an engaging conversation with the audience about the different internal challenges that intrapreneurs face within their own organizations when creating and managing innovations. Challenges such as lacking the right tools, communicating under a mutual language and culture, navigating through the right chain of reporting, and managing between multiple innovation projects and the day-to-day job were raised in the discussion.

Thank you everyone for joining this session of the Vancouver Corporate Innovation Group featuring Arthur Gooch from Andritz. Big shout-out to our partners BDO for hosting the event in their offices and for providing the food and drinks. A special thanks to Ken Bell from BDO for once again providing the door prize.
