The OEM’s “innovation approach” has been referenced in a new global report compiled by Capgemini Consulting and MIT Digital.
The report is entitled ‘The Foundations of Corporate Innovation in the Digital Age’ and “identifies three factors for a successful organisation of innovation in large corporations”, consisting of “the right innovation architecture, the right innovation sources and the alignment of the right capabilities”, as ChannelInfo reveals.
