Agile Giants: Lessons from Corporate Innovators

Feb 11, 2019

Host Sean Ammirati, Co-Founder and Director of the Carnegie Mellon Corporate Startup Lab, sits down with Ryan Thomas Vice President, Innovation at The J.M. Smucker Company.    

As a leader of innovation within a $8B Food, Beverage & Pet company, Ryan provides great perspective.  There's a ton of lessons here both for how to do innovation inside a consumer-facing brand like Smucker's, as well as just generally how large companies should approach these processes.  You'll also see many similarities if you're a traditional entrepreneur to the lean startup methodology and design thinking.
