Achieving Breakthrough Innovation in Regulated Industries:
Metrics and Indicators of Early Failure and Repeatable Success

Wayne Mackey Live Audio-Session with
Wayne Mackey
Product Development Consulting, Inc.

It's been said that innovation is the lifeblood of every company, but how do you innovate successfully in a regulated environment where perfect data is king and every risk is a crime? This audio conference addresses both sides of this 'regulated innovation paradox'. We begin with a framework that characterizes the 'critical few' elements needed for accurate data collection that are consistent with a supportive innovation environment.

Using that framework, example industry benchmarks and best practices are highlighted from successful innovators from pharmaceuticals, aerospace, medical device, public utilities and telecommunication. The role of company leaders in regulated innovation is then covered including a "top ten' list of leadership mandates. 

To ensure consistent operational effectiveness in the framework, the effects of environment, organization structure and decision making are outlined. All the pieces are now in place, but the job is not complete without a simple but effective system of governance. The key metrics of regulated innovation are reviewed, including those that consistently give early, predictive indications of success or failure.

By participating in this audio-conference you will have the opportunity to learn from the hard fought experience of industry leaders while also sharing your own lessons-learned and questions. Specific take-aways include:

  • A simple framework to build your own innovation approach on

  • Case study examples from public utilities, medical devices, pharmaceuticals, aerospace and telecommunications

  • The top ten leadership mandates for successful regulated innovation

  • Infrastructure considerations to better enable the processes

  • The key metrics of regulated innovation

Don’t miss this unique opportunity to bring your own experiences (and questions) into the discussion and receive expert feedback.   The session will be a 60-minute presentation with 30 minutes interactive Q&A.

Invite your whole team to join you - the fee is the same as long as you are on one line, just put it on speakerphone!
