Creating An Innovation Culture 

by Chris Winfield

In tech we're tasked with creating new and innovative solutions, but it can be hard to be creative on demand when faced with the pressures of handling feature requests, maintaining legacy solutions and fixing bugs. How can we be proactive rather than reactive, and turn ideas into products that will provide years of growth?

In this talk we'll look at how giving teams a real sense of ownership, avoiding hard deadlines and focusing on a rapid release cycle can foster a no-nonsense innovation culture in companies of all sizes, from startups to large PLCs.
