Internal vs External Sources of Innovation: What is the balance and what does the future look like?
Alain shared 3 top takeaways from the discussion:
1. Need of a champion in a business to conduct innovation (external or internal)
2. Both sources are important in innovation (external or internal) to solve a specific problem
3. Time to market is a critical aspect of innovation: it varies from 9 months to 10 years, depending on the product and customer (software is fast, municipal application is long)
