Emerson is dedicated to innovation, and André St-Martin, Lead Innovation Strategist, has attended three of our Birds of Feather Innovation Leaders (BOF) events to learn and share ideas on best practices. At our BOF in Hong Kong, André discussed the challenges in innovation, particularly on the review processes, saying, "one of the biggest challenges is about the balance of expectation of quick results and having to work/nurture/incubate ideas."
