Filene's Center for Organizational Entrepreneurship hosted its second annual colloquium on June 15, 2017.

Filene Fellow Dennis Campbell and other distinguished guests shared their expertise on organizational innovation and led provocative discussions on how credit unions can maneuver their organizations towards innovation that best serves their members.

The talented line up of world-class thinkers included:

  • Dennis Campbell, Filene Fellow and Dwight P. Robinson, Jr. Professor of Business Administration, Harvard Business School opened with Structuring Credit Unions for Innovation and shared the state with Annette Rivet, chief transformation officer at Conexus Credit Union, who shared highlights from a forthcoming Filene case study on their credit union's innovation transformation.
  • Rory McDonald, Assistant Professor of Business Administration, Harvard Business School presented research on Disruptive Innovation: Creating and Capturing New Growth - Why do some promising technologies gain traction with customers while others don’t? Why do so many new product development efforts flounder? Why do successful companies stumble in the face of certain types of market and technological change? This session introduced powerful theories of innovation that help answer these questions.
