I recently had the pleasure of participating in a live stream, panel event with Saipem Open Talks. The session explored the role of innovation within complex organizations in terms of going digital, inducing cultural change, integrating innovative elements and designing a sustainable business.

During the session, I highlighted why organizations need to consider both data and the experience of employees when making decisions about innovation, how digital helps eliminate the human factor from high risk situations, and how innovation creates competitiveness.

In addition, I described why organizations need a culture of innovation, an ecosystem to support that system, and a systemic approach to succeed. This ecosystem includes collaboration amongst regulators, industry, and financial institutions.
