The Conference «INTRO-2018: how the companies can keep the startup drive?»

On the 24th of April, Lviv Business School of UCU (LvBS) invites you to the eighth annual Vision Conference on the topic of the business innovation «INTRO-2018: how the companies can keep the startup drive?»

Ukrainian and international experts and entrepreneurs are meeting at the contemporary Sheptytskyi Center in Lviv to discuss the ways to implement innovative approaches in large corporations, small and medium-sized businesses, as well as how to make innovations a part of an organizational culture.

Unfortunately, the development of an organizational culture very often lags behind the demands of the innovative shifts. The issue of the implementation of declared values by managers and by staff as well is very important and contributes to the internal development of the organization and the creation of the effective innovative motivation of the staff.

International institutions consider technologies of the main driver of the company development. It is important for Ukrainian business to be more interested in the essence of global processes, the role of innovation and the possibilities of their introduction. There is no point to expect that the state will actively develop the country’s innovative potential, it is necessary to do it on our own. Therefore, we decided to invite representatives of different business sizes and essentials to discuss the necessity of introducing innovations, the experience of how they manage to implement it and approach to them in terms of preserving and developing organizational culture.
