Professor Peter Williamson, Honorary Professor of International Management, Cambridge Judge Business School
Professor Williamson is well known as the co-author of an influential book on China's Cost Innovation. In this seminar, he will be reporting on his latest research into the ways that Chinese companies are finding new ways to innovate by reducing lead times and speeding problem solving. His research involved discussions with 23 Chinese companies, paying specific attention to those which appeared to be pioneering new approaches to speeded innovation and new product development. His perceptions were then cross-checked with observers in a number of global companies with involvement in China.
We will be happy to welcome delegates from the Genesis conference to this seminar. Although Professor Williamson will be covering developments in a number of industries, he will refer to WuXi AppTec, a pharmaceutical, biopharmaceutical and medical-device outsourcing company with operations in both China and the United States, which has embraced this industrialized approach to new product development.
