    Kathryn Cormican (Ph.D.) leads research in the College of Engineering & Informatics at the National University of Ireland Galway.  She directs a number of research projects in the area of enterprise systems engineering and technology innovation management. This is an applied research space so it is essential to work closely with industry to identify and prioritize requirements, co-develop solutions and validate and implement new models and systems. The research is multidisciplinary in nature and spans areas such as engineering, technology and business. Kathryn has published widely at international conferences and peer-reviewed international journals. Kathryn works closely with many leading organisations and SMEs helping them to diagnose; develop and deploy new processes and systems.

     

    Title: User-Centred Innovation: Confessions from the coalface

    Synopsis: This talk aims to synthesize some of the (often painful) lessons learned from 24 years of applied research in the area of technology innovation management.  The key goal is to share some salient and hopefully interesting aspects Kathryn has learned from working closely with high technology organizations.  It will be thought provoking, engaging and peppered with real world examples. You will see lots of pictures and very few numbers. There will be no graphs! The output of this talk is to explore new ideas, seek new connections and start a new conversation.
