Cisco is Honored as BTOES Award Finalist for Innovation Leadership and Program
Gone are the days when innovation was solely tied to product development and R&D. In today’s fast-paced digital age, innovation has become a non-negotiable competitive differentiator, essential to a business’ very survival. But because innovation is a mindset, it requires people (not just technology) from diverse backgrounds collaborating on their best and brightest ideas.
As a believer in the notion that innovation can come from anyone, anywhere, anytime, Cisco created “My Innovation,” an initiative that unifies 30+ innovation programs, fostering a culture of grassroots, cross-functional collaboration. My Innovation – recognized as a finalist for the BTOES Awards – lives on what Cisco calls their “Innovation Hub,” – an always-on, centralized, virtual community that has become the anchor of Cisco’s innovation initiatives. Throughout the past two years, My Innovation has transformed Cisco’s culture by inspiring a new generation of intrapreneurs, while creating new value for the enterprise at large.
Alex Goryachev, Cisco’s Managing Director of Innovation Strategy, and Mathilde Durvy, Innovation Lead for the My Innovation program, are the catalysts for Cisco’s internal and external co-innovation efforts. Alex is also being honored as a finalist in the BTOES Award “Operational Excellence Outstanding Leader of the Year” category for his success growing internal innovation by providing employees at all levels, across all disciplines, the opportunity to share their big ideas and obtain the support needed to bring them to life.
