Restaurant Executive Summit: Attain Biz Success through New Innovation Models

How are successful companies applying new models of innovation for creating new businesses, not just new products?

Join Robert C. Wolcott, founder and executive director of the Kellogg Innovation Network, Kellogg School of Management, Northwestern University, for a must-see session that will answer this very question at the 2010 Restaurant Executive Summit, this September 29 — October 1 at The Grand Del Mar Resort in San Diego, Calif.

An expert on corporate innovation and entrepreneurship, Wolcott will offer insights into how successful companies are approaching innovation as a new business design challenge, and how companies can build their organizations and infrastructure to support success in the session, "A New Design Model for Business Innovation."

Wolcott is co-author of Grow From Within: Mastering Corporate Entrepreneurship and Innovation. His work has also appeared in MIT Sloan Management Review, The Wall Street Journal, Advertising Age, BusinessWeek, The Financial Times (UK/European Edition) and The New York Times. Wolcott also co-founded and serves as managing partner of Clareo Partners LLC, a corporate strategy and innovation management consultancy specializing in new business creation and growth.
