“The Trolls of Innovation – And the Swords We Use to Fight Them”

Jahr works with innovation within the framework of construction projects. In her session, The Trolls of Innovation – And the Swords We Use to Fight Them, she will introduce the three “trolls” that she regularly battles in her everyday work – trolls that may be particularly noticeable in the construction sector. Jahr will draw on her personal experiences from twenty years as an innovation process manager as she explains the nature of these trolls, and she will discuss with the audience which swords we may use to fight them. This session is an opportunity to look at innovation in a different way!
