Improving Innovation Outcomes in Asset Intensive Industries – 26 Aug 2024


The pace of technological change only seems to get faster and faster, and new innovations are changing the competitive contours of almost every industry at a breakneck pace. Above and beyond the changes unfolding throughout the rest of the marketplace, however, managers and executives in asset-intensive organisations — a category that typically includes industries like mining, energy, and railways — have long understood that their sectors often face many additional innovation related challenges that others do not.

Jointly hosted by QUT’s Centre for Future Enterprise and the Asset Institute on Monday 26 August 2024 from 9:30 AM – 1:00 PM at in the Gibson Room, Z Block, Lvl 10, 2 George Street, QUT Gardens Point Campus, this discussion forum will bring together academics, industry practitioners, and government policymakers to discuss the current challenges facing would-be innovators in these industries.

Featured guest speaker will be Prof. Alex Slocum from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) who will discuss some of his recent work on innovations within the asset-intensive domain, and shed light on his team’s different approach to delivering breakthrough concepts. Our other speakers will be Prof. Robert K. Perrons, Professor of Technology Management and Strategy at QUT and Prof. Kevin C. Desouza, Professor of Business, Technology and Strategy in the School of Management at the QUT Business School.
