Innovation versus Disruption. Where is our Industry Headed?

Print Print this Article | Send to Colleague


Have you registered for PEERS 2017 yet?

If not, you’ll be missing out on a particularly relevant keynote address by Robert Tiede, EVP and COO for Sonoco Products Company. Tiede will be examining how "disruptive innovation" has created two kinds of companies – the ones causing disruption, and the ones being disrupted.

Where does your company stand?

Based on this year’s PEERS theme, Maximizing Success through Innovation, Mr. Tiede’s address is one of the key highlights of the four-day event. Scheduled for Monday, November 6 from 8:30 – 10:00 a.m., Mr. Tiede will address how disruptive innovation can help advance the industry, including:
  • Innovation is either an answer to disruption or the cause
  • What makes innovation disruptive
  • Change is inevitable; whether you lead, follow, or are disrupted by it is your choice
  • It is the experience of using technology – not the technology itself – that creates disruption
  • Applying the "Medici Effect" in your company
  • Developing an innovation ecosystem
  • How our industry’s demise "has been greatly exaggerated"
  • Challenges for the next decade.
PEERS 2017 is the premier resource for professionals in the pulp and paper industry, including those in engineering, environmental, recycling and sustainability roles. Act quickly to take advantage of early bird pricing and register before this Friday, October 6 (today and tomorrow!).
