Brett Roberts from New Zealand did the opening presentation at the itSMF conference in Melbourne. (for twitter feed updates, check #Leadit )
The topic was around Innovation and how it is changing from closed innovation (everything in-house) to open innovation with co-competition and partnerships.
This type of innovation changes business models, marketing and organizational structures. Innovation is the only way to stay current in your industry and in business.
But what about innovation in the Finance area?!? You still need to adhere to legal and compliancy requirements, but there must be innovative ways to do the same tasks.
Innovation happens each and every day, in every facet of the organisation. Especially now that there are more and more Gen Y employees we need to think about different ways to perform our tasks. Gen Y has a very different workstyle than Gen X or the Baby Boomers.

Because we know a little bit about each aspect of the business, IT people are ideally positioned to be involved in innovation…
