  • Innovation in Large Organizations: Evolution & Disruption with Dr. Peter Temes

    June 25, 2024


  • Large organizations now integrate innovation directly into their core operations rather than keeping it separate. This shift ensures that innovative processes and ideas are implemented and scaled effectively across the entire organization, making innovation a central part of the business.
