Featured Virtual Summit & Speakers

Innovation is a concept that individuals and corporations alike seek to discover. What is Innovation and how can we successfully harness its power?

This year’s LPPDE Virtual Summit 2020, will be dedicated to understanding how knowledge fits into the innovation model. Today we have great new constructs in Agile, Scrum, and the Lean Startup to motivate us, but where can we find the fundamentals? How can we craft a product that meets the customer interests the first time?
