Growth through innovation is not just about technology or
products but rather about the careful design and optimization of
the business with people, processes, policies, and partners with
purpose, passion, persistence, and perspiration!
In this talk, Dr. Srini Chari will share his experiences first
in working at a large technology firm (IBM); followed by running
a small emerging technology software startup; and now at being a
solo entrepreneur. He will discuss the key differences between
these three scenarios. including how to optimize and grow the
business by working with key stakeholders including investors,
clients, business partners, employees, and others.
He will take a 360-degree-view examining each business scenario
across various dimensions, ranging from strategy (strategic intent
marketplace insight, technology innovation, business design) to
execution (critical operational tasks, climate/culture, talent,
organization, etc.). He will highlight the key differences and
lessons to be learned. Most of the talk will focus on the practical
aspects of leading or running a technology intensive business.
