The ICEDR Global Innovations Summit is hosted by Aon and Chicago Booth
. ICEDR sponsor companies may send 3 participants
. ICEDR partner business schools may send 1 participant
The annual ICEDR Global Innovations Summit is ICEDR's flagship program and is intended as a learning opportunity for ICEDR's most senior-level audience. Each year, approximately 60 senior-level HR executives from ICEDR sponsor companies and senior Executive Education professionals from ICEDR partner business schools gather together to exchange practices, ideas, and challenges. The Summit is highly interactive, leaving ample time for dialogue so participants are able to discuss the challenges their organizations are facing.
- We asked our partners what was the most top-of-mind issue for them, and leading enterprise-wide transformation topped the list. In response, we have put together an impressive series of case examples of companies that are facing transformation challenges of many kinds:
• purpose-driven transformations;
• business model disruption;
• leading strategic and cultural change simultaneously;
• how social networks help drive transformation initiatives;
• the role of HR in driving transformations;
• innovations in partnership programs in leading transformation.
Who Should Attend
The ICEDR Global Innovations Summit is ICEDR’s most senior-level program. Sponsor corporations may send 3 senior HRD executives. Sponsor institutions may send 1 colleague. This Summit is intended for those who are on the front lines of leading transformation efforts. It would also be appropriate for line leaders and OD practitioners who are leading change efforts at the moment.
