Knowledge in Innovation with Steve Rogers

Their products help business leaders make smarter and faster decisions for anything regarding product, business, and operations. As Principal Solutions Architect, Steve is leading Sopheon's product innovation processes and product lifecycle management. Steve has been part of Sopheon for over 27 years. Steve joins me to discuss how innovation can still happen in an innovation-saturated market. He shares what life was like as a young professional in Europe and why he pursued a career in innovations. He explains why he doesn't believe in deleting emails and how companies can provide their customers with a "coffee machine" experience. Steve also describes why small companies will play a significant role in future innovations. "

Being able to find and capture knowledge in a way that is reusable is a challenge that is still with us." - Steve Rogers
