Innovation is crucial to the continuing success of any organization. We know from history that refusing to evolve with the market can have devastating consequences, just think of Blockbuster, Kodak and Xerox.
In the context of Contracts and Commercial, what does it mean to innovate? The economist Joseph Schumpeter drew a clear distinction between technical invention and commercial innovation. You, the contracts and commercial community, should be at the heart of driving and realizing innovation within your organizations. As we announce the 2019 IACCM Global Innovation and Excellence Awards, we invite you to join us and hear some of the inspiring stories that have led to winning submissions in previous years.
