Qmarkets and Koina to Share Innovation Management Best Practices at Swiss Events

Michael Stilger, SVP Global Solutions at Qmarkets, and Maria Tarcsay, Innovation Manager at Koina, will draw from their experience with Swiss and German enterprises including Nestle, Swiss Post and Lufthansa. 

 TEL AVIV – October 18th, 2016Qmarkets – one of the leading providers of innovation management and collective intelligence solutions – is holding three joint events with its Swiss partner, Koina GmbH.

During the events, Michael Stilger, SVP Global Solutions at Qmarkets, and Maria Tarcsay, Innovation Manager at Koina, will share insights on implementing innovation management at large enterprises, drawing on their work with major Swiss and German corporations such as Nestle, Swiss Post, Swiss Rail and Lufthansa.


“Implementing a culture of innovation within a large organization is one of the toughest operational challenges faced by business leaders today,” says Michael Stilger, SVP Global Solutions at Qmarkets. “However innovation management software can make this objective entirely more achievable.”

“These breakfast sessions” Michael adds “will give innovation leaders from flagship companies across Switzerland, the opportunity to discover field-proven industry best practices, and share their own vision for innovation success.”

“When planning the deployment”, adds Maria Tarcsay, Innovation Manager at Koina, “the company strategy needs to take into account “soft” factors such as bureaucracy, communication culture, hierarchy and opposition to change, plan and prepare for different scenarios. The meetings we plan to hold are aimed at providing some guidelines on how to deal with these important issues.”

Among the topics that will be covered:

  • The importance of leading a culture of innovation from the top down.
  • How to overcome the challenges of deploying innovation management at an organization with thousands of employees in multiple locations.
  • Discovering and utilizing best practices from peers, experts, and even competitors.
