Do you think necessity is the mother of invention? Not always. There is a very thin line between brilliant innovation and absolute failure. In fact, many groundbreaking inventions were accidental discoveries. So, why are some organizations prone to accidental discoveries while others see them pass by as uninterested observers?

Following Dr. Kwok, Libby Ingrassia will provide an update on the IBM Champions Program.
