A conductor for innovation
Whether you are part of R&D (if it is not yet renamed R&I...nnovation!) or the General Management, you are responsible for developing and organizing innovation in all its forms. With one foot in production and engineering, another in marketing, and both hands in operations, you need to stimulate the conversion of ideas into projects, technologies into services, prototypes into products...
Your weapons: foresight, strategic vision, Open Innovation, digitalization, and entrepreneurial methods.
Your challenges: reconcile all your colleagues with what comes from elsewhere, communicate on your success stories, "unsilote" services, mobilize innovation actors internally (purchasing, legal, R&D, IP...) and externally (start-ups, innovation clubs, partnerships, institutional, financial...).
