What’s this event all about?
As the technology landscape evolves, companies are changing the way they operate and providing new opportunities for employees. Consumer preference is increasingly driving the adoption of technology and policies within the workplace.

The implementation of BYOD provides greater flexibility and personal choice for individual workers. It has also been proven to increase productivity and revenues. In addition, employee-led innovation (ELI) offers an alternative to the traditional top-down approach to innovation by involving staff – including the end user – in all areas of developing IT solutions.

Join our live, one-hour webcast, “Understanding the value of employee-led innovation & BYOD”, and learn from industry experts as they discuss:
• Why companies are embracing these trends
• Considerations for your company before implementing employee-led innovation
• Measuring the value of ELI and BYOD
• How ELI can help to resolve organizational issues

  1. As bad a rap as IT gets, the few good teams are ultimately concerned with Data Security and Federal regulation compliance. Most ELI starts as what I define as OPFOR IT because it does not concern itself with Data Security, or any security at all. With the focus on only making things easier this makes the interaction very hostile to start. This leads to IT working against ELI more than working with, and vice versa. How do you propose to handle this issue?

  2. Question 1. How should companies think beyond the app (or the device) when they developing ELI?
    Question 2. What is the role of the employee in ELI beyond the insatiable appetite for cool devices?
