Practice Makes Progress: the multiple logics of continuing innovation

BP Centennial public lecture

Date: Wednesday 7 May 2014 
Time: 6.30-8pm 
Venue: Sheikh Zayed Theatre, New Academic Building
Speaker: Professor Sidney Winter
Chair: Professor Michael Barzelay

Innovative activity is commonly conceived in terms of flashes of creative insight, but success often rewards expertise, persistence and practice as much as creativity.
The lecture will develop and illustrate this observation.

Sidney Winter (@sidwindc) is a BP Centennial Professor in the Department of Management at LSE.
