Say "YES" to Innovation:  Influencing to Create an Atmosphere for Change

Today, every company, regardless of its maturity or that of its industry, has to scramble to differentiate and compete successfully. Companies in the relocation industry are no exception. They are under pressure to make mobility faster, better, and cheaper; find the right balance between cost containment and attracting talent; and fight the trend of commoditization that forces price competition.  But how do you affect change if you don't sit in the "corner office" of your organization? In this interactive session you'll learn about the different kinds of innovation. You'll have the chance to work in small groups on some innovative problem solving. And you'll walk away with ideas for influencing up, across, and down to inspire your organization to be more innovative.

12:30 - 1:30 p.m. Lunch 

1:30 - 2:30 p.m. The Influence of Procurement
