Spotify is continuously experimenting with ways to grow and support intrapreneurs in a decentralized culture. How can you create room for innovation? How can new concepts emerge and be taken from idea to production without stage gates or formal responsibilities? What are the challenges and risks involved? We don’t have specific answers, but we do have some examples. We’ll share some real-life innovation stories and discuss some things we have learned so far.

    Hi, can we have more details on the talk?

    for instance, how do you mean as innovation in a decentralized culture? what have you done? which results did you achieve?

    Are these case studies based on published information or personal experience?

    To what level of detail would this session get into, about the specific of how these models were implemented?

    Can this be covered in a shorter time? 20 minutes?
