Planview to Discuss Cultivating Innovation at Chief Innovation Officer Summit

USTIN, Texas – May 16, 2016

M&A activity designed to spur innovation across global teams can often thwart it instead. On May 18 during the Chief Innovation Officer Summit in San Francisco, Planview’s Chief Product Officer Patrick Tickle will discuss what innovation and culture means to businesses and how to cultivate it within a global M&A focused world.

Session Title

Open the Innovation Floodgates: Creating Capacity for Innovation


Most conversations on innovation focus on developing the breakthrough products and services that will grow the business. But as companies continue to face fierce competition, they look to drive innovation not only organically but also inorganically via mergers and acquisitions. This creates unique challenges as companies begin to build a culture of innovation often across multinational teams. Tickle will draw upon his experience growing international teams across multiple geographies to demonstrate how to streamline and simplify the innovation process for better results.

The Chief Innovation Officer Summit in San Francisco brings the insights of Global 500 innovation professionals to the West Coast for two days of sharing challenges, identifying opportunities and networking with fellow industry innovators.
