"Innovation: Transformation inside out"
On Wednesday 12 of septeimbre the fifth version of the Innovadrinks organized by Innova360.The event took place in the new cowork space of WeWork, recognized international brand of workspaces.
On this occasion, the panel was moderated by Laura Chicurel, CEO of Innova360 and counted with the participation of important companies that are currently working on corporate innovation, who told us about their different perspectives in innovation management models in their organizations. Among the participants were José Miguel Calderón, Innovation Manager of Sodexo, Hernán Acuña, Manager Enel Innovation Hub Chile and Claudio Barahona, Country Manager Chile of Telefónica Open Future and Wayra.
The Innovadrinks are part of a sequence of events to discuss the best practices adopted by large companies in Chile in their innovation management processes. In a casual and relaxed environment, with an after-office format, the aim is to generate greater collaboration and increase dialogue between companies in the discovery of joint work opportunities, giving rise to new solutions in the corporate world. As usual in the innovarinks we started with an entertaining Networking Drinks in which Start-ups and important directors, managers and executives of different organizations participated.
The panelists talked and shared the different strategies they have used in their corporate innovation processes, in some cases they have addressed it from an internal point of view, in other cases in an open manner or also, using both models holistically. In the case of Claudio Barahona de Wayra, who have been using 6 for an open innovation model, explains that: "There are no unique recipes to innovate-work with startups. Some keys: To have the commitment of the CEO and company managers, to dedicate their own resources, to create autonomous business / startup link mechanisms, to understand which entrepreneurs are partners and not employees or suppliers ". With these three interesting cases, Sodexo, Wayra and Enel, we were able to understand how to develop and implement different models and integration into the ecosystem.
