unBlocking Supplier-led Innovation: Securing collaborative innovation on Blockchain


John Barker & Will Webberley,
Simply Do Ideas


84% of senior executives state innovation as the most important factor to survival and growth. But only 6% are satisfied with how innovation is managed at their organisation (McKinsey & Co 2020)

Despite a wide recognition that innovation needs to be at the heart of any ambitious business strategy, the reality is that many organisations face significant challenges when it comes to innovation in the supply chain.

Barriers around protection, sharing, and understanding of intellectual property hinder collaborative innovation in these supply chains. While the innovative use of Blockchain technology provides a route to break down these obstacles. To provide insight and learning around this process and the technological challenges of implementation Will Webberley, Chief Technology Officer, and John Barker, Associate Director of Strategic Partnerships, at Simply Do Ideas will talk through their experience in developing novel solutions to these problems.
