  • Are you looking for new ways to grow your business— especially during uncertain economic times?
  • Do you face stiff competition from existing and new players in your industry?
  • Are your resources squeezed in each new budget cycle?
  • Would you like additional tools to assess plausible growth strategies?

In this interactive Webcast you’ll discover a number of proven strategies to effectively monetize existing company assets. In addition, you’ll see how to identify and investigate new opportunities to spur business growth—even during periods of economic turbulence.

Many companies have kick-started “blockbuster” products once they aligned resources in new ways. This Webcast shows you how to make your own organic growth initiatives a reality.

  • Implementing internal analysis tools for more flexible business planning during volatile budgeting cycles
  • Leveraging licensing and alliances as growth strategies
  • Harvesting brands and systems for capital-efficient growth
  • Developing systems for an effective Intellectual Asset Management (IAM) program
  • Implementing best practices for stimulating creativity and innovation within your company
