Creating a Culture of Corporate Innovation w/ Mike Tushman & Andy Binns

October 13 - 14, 2022

Innovation is no longer a word reserved for entrepreneurs and start-ups. Today, corporations that can discover and launch new business models inside organizations have the potential to disrupt their competitors and reap tremendous rewards. Companies who learn to infuse innovation practices into their culture have even greater potential and more resources than startups to turn ideas into action.

Binns-Change Logic
Corporate Explorer Book Cover

Michael Tushman, Professor at Harvard Business School, and Andrew Binns, Director and Co-founder of strategic advisory firm Change Logic, are trailblazers of corporate innovation and co-authors of the newly released book, Corporate Explorers: How Corporations Beat Start-ups at the Innovation Game. Together they have decades of experience helping leaders learn how to apply innovation practices with greater discipline and scale original business models. Their actionable framework explains how executives can activate employees to become Corporate Explorers. 

In this in-person roundtable, Mike and Andy will discuss how to transform innovation programs into a thriving source of new business. You’ll learn how innovation programs can help attract, retain, and motivate entrepreneurial talent and energize employees by creating a realistic path to innovation. Now is the time for Corporate Explorers to chart the course for business models of the future.

The Outthinker Strategy Network (OSN) is an invitation-only network of Chief Strategy Officers and executives leading strategy for large companies. 

OSN members get exclusive access to a global peer group of strategy executives and world-class thought-leaders. Members engage in curated learning, practical conversations, and 1:1 networking with connections hand-selected by the Outthinker team based on their needs.

The individuals representing their organizations have described the Outthinker Strategy Network as invaluable for bringing new ideas and transformative thinking into their organizations – enhancing the efficacy and success of their strategy teams and furthering the trajectory of their individual careers. 

The ultimate purpose of the Outthinker Strategy Network is to help strategy executive members in solving their top challenges.  

There are two sub-groups of the Outthinker Strategy Network. 

  1. The OSN Large Enterprise group – comprised of strategists from $1B+ revenue businesses
  2. The OSN Growth Mid-Market group – comprised of strategists from $100-$900M revenue businesses

Both of these groups are comprised of Chief Strategy Officers and executives leading strategy for their respective organizations. The Large Enterprise group and Growth Mid-Market group have a mix of programming and networking opportunities that are both exclusive and non-exclusive to their respective sub-groups.
