The most innovative companies in the world are the ones who emphasize speed. But technologies have already sped up the process and the engineering is only one part of the process. When company leadership says “Do it faster” engineers may feel tapped out. They don’t necessarily have more tools or know how to put that directive into action. This panel aims to uncover the secrets of innovating quickly, both in product development and in processes to improve efficiencies. They’ll discuss real-world situations, as well as tools and tips to help meet innovation goals.
