The vital need for proficiency in company growth was the catalyst for the emergence of the organization called the Front End of Innovation in 1993. The premise is that innovation is the starting point in which a business moves forward in creating sustainable success. It stands to reason that with proliferation of innovative products and services that there needed to be some management strategies. FEI provides the resources that innovation teams need to effectively manage these products and services.
This year’s innovation event promises to be a very interesting and informative for anyone who is involved in innovation strategies or has an invested interest in innovation techniques. FEI 2017 will be held at the Seaport Trade Center in Boston, MA May 8th to May 11th.
