Innovation Lessons from Asia and Driving Growth in Emerging Markets

Friday, 22 February 2013

Scott Anthony is the Managing Director of Innosight and is the author of The Innovator’s Guide to Growth: Putting Disruptive Innovation to Work and The Silver Lining: An Innovation Playbook for Uncertain Times (Harvard Business Press). Prior to joining Innosight, Scott was a senior researcher with Innosight co-founder and Harvard Business School Professor Clayton Christensen, managing a group that worked to further Christensen’s research on innovation.
He moved to Singapore 3 years ago, where he believes that the real game changers and next wave of innovations and disruptions are taking place. In this keynote titled “Innovation Lessons from Asia and Driving Growth in Emerging Markets”, he discussed what it takes to succeed in emerging markets particularly Asia and what might be stopping us from being more innovative. Sharing his extensive experience in India, China, Philippines and Thailand, working with different companies, he shared 5 key lessons he learnt to succeed in emerging markets: 1) Go Native 2) Delight not Delude 3) New Business Models 4) Build Ecosystem 5) Embrace Local Autonomy.
In conclusion, he asserted that failure is the most important step in success. The real game changers are the ones who can tolerate failure and keep going with humility.

"Without a doubt the best conference in Australia with a delightful mix of creativity and big thinking bringing together an eclectic group of industry, community and education leaders. Once again, I’ve come away enthused by new ideas, more aware of future trends, and heartened by the kindness of humanity. We all have a role to play and it should be a collective one." Kerry Anderson, Founder of Operation Next Gen

"Conferences are boring. Creative Innovation is more like a rodeo for ideas, and you are guaranteed to leave wanting to make the world better for everyone." Andrew Despi, A.kin

"Kudos to Tania for organising the the 2019 CI Conference in Melbourne - it is the best I have attended so far. All the speakers and sessions were very well-planned. I have attended many conferences and this is the first I did not have the 'luxury' to skip any sessions. Your effort in this space has truly made Melbourne a global innovation and entrepreneurship hub." Danny Ong, Deakin University

"I wanted to pass along how incredible I thought Creative Innovation was and how much your passion for life and for humanity was inspiring to all of us. It was a privilege to be included and one that I am very grateful for." John Pickering, Chief Behavioural Scientist

"Creative Innovation is a transformational platform built by changemakers for changemakers. It is an educational adventure showcasing the forefront of ideas internationally." Melissa Warner, Ci2019 Scholarship Winner & Education Officer, Mind Medicine Australia

"Creative Innovation 2019 was one of the most well-organised events I’ve ever taken part in. From beginning to the end, every detail had been planned through and taken care of. Secondly, are the production values. As a result, it was possible to attend all the sessions without suffering conference burn-out, happy in the knowledge that the next piece of content was guaranteed to delight and challenge the senses." Richard Claydon (Singapore)
