“If we want to be truly ahead of the market, we need to do more of what we’ve been doing, but so much faster and in a more intense way.”

In this episode, we are pleased to welcome Roni Michael from KPMG International. Roni is dedicated to innovation at heart and in her role as Global Head of Innovation responsible for establishing, driving, and accelerating innovation activities within KPMG’s global organization.

In addition to the question of how KPMG helps clients innovate in an increasingly fast-paced future, Roni also talks to us about how to maintain a balanced innovation portfolio, but also how to measure the success of innovation. We will also take a look at one of KPMG’s focused topics, “The new era of work,” which included a large-scale hackathon. Want to learn more? Then tune in!
