Utility Execs' Roundtable: We sat down with seven utility execs who lead their companies on innovation
The electric utility industry has recognized that its future will look much different from its past. An environment where disruptive technology establishes opportunity and customer behavior defines necessity. It drives a fundamental reshaping of how the industry positions itself to meet these challenges.
To address this market shift, industry executives have begun to communicate internally about the importance and value of innovation within their companies. Executives have also been tapped to "stand-up" organizations to enable these companies to adopt the kinds of practices long embedded in industrial and consumer products companies.
Utility Execs' Roundtable
Strategy& and Public Utilities Fortnightly recently collaborated on an Innovation Roundtable in Washington, D.C. at the offices of the Edison Electric Institute.
The experiences of these senior executives convey insights attained through the hard work of creating their unique innovation platforms. For other companies just now forging their own ways to innovate, these insights can accelerate program development. And harness a collective experience that can eliminate false starts and costly failures.
