Virtual Round Table 2019/2

Building Innovation Capabilities

December 4, 2019 | 17:30- 18:30 CET

Featuring Panelists from Bayer, Roland Berger, and IE Business School


ECLF virtual Round Tables feature a carefully curated group of 3-5 panelists who will share their perspectives and experiences on issues that are relevant to the future of Transformational Learning.

The panels typically consist of ECLF members, and their composition changes depending on the topic we discuss. Occasionally we invite an external thought leader to spark the conversation. 

The sessions are open for interested employees of all ECLF member companies as well as for invited guests. ECLF members have the opportunity to join the panel via an "empty chair" and participate in direct conversation with the panelists.

Our upcoming Round Table will explore one of the perennial challanges organizations face: How to build the capabilities to sustain innovation on an ongoing basis. The "ABC" composition of our panel lends itself to a conversation that bridges conceptual thinking with real-life experiences and perspectives.  We will explore some of the key issues related to innovation, such as ambidexterity, ideation-incubation-scaling challenges, the role of innovation ecosystems, etc., and discuss how to build the necessary capabilities to deal with them.
