Nima Montazeri

With new technologies increasing the pace of innovation every day, companies demand a constant supply of fresh ideas. To be successful, an innovation process must deliver two things: a superior solution and a great market response. Once you have the former, how do you ensure the latter? It all starts by examining the key dimensions of a technology’s evolution and understanding how it’s delighting customers.

Join us for this edition of Spotlight on Innovation to learn how to make better decisions about where to focus your innovation efforts and money. You’ll also find out—through two case studies—how backing the right industry innovations can pay off for your organization in a major way.

O’Reilly’s Spotlight Series explores emerging business and technology topics and ideas through a series of one-hour, live interactive events. You’ll engage in a live conversation with experts, sharing your questions and ideas, while hearing their unique perspectives, insights, fears, and predictions for the future.

In every edition of Spotlight on Innovation, you’ll learn about, discuss, and debate the future. Best of all, you’ll discover what successful companies have in common, and how you can follow their lead with small, practical steps to transform your organization and prepare for the Next Economy.
