From 11th to 13th of March all innovators will be heading to Front End Innovation (FEI) in Vienna, Austria. FEI 2015 is ALL about creating meaningful opportunities for innovators to collaborate based on content.
While recognizing the importance of case-based learning, the goal of every session is ACTION LEARNING- where the participants focus on creating future value instead of simply hearing about what's been done in the past.
