Mr. Persson’s passion centers on how to make successful innovation happen for any organization. Is there an optimal way to think about how we organize ourselves to succeed? What are the ways we can avoid pitfalls? As Director at Innovation 360, he gets to learn about and implement ways to make innovation a successful habit for organizations ranging from unicorns to global giants.
During his 15 years of experience in business development, innovation strategy, and management, he has had the chance to both start companies and works in strategic functions.
