DevOps101 & Innovation


You are cordially invited to our Mighty March Meetup.

This month ALI we have two great speakers:


Speaker 1: Rob Mason, Ammeon


Our first speaker on the night will be Rob Mason, Chief Architect from Ammeon who will be taking his usual interesting slant on the principles of DevOps and how it connects with Agile and Lean.


Speaker 2: Dr Peter Robbins, Innovation Foundation and NUI Maynooth


Our second speaker is Dr Peter Robbins from NUI Maynooth and head of the Innovation Foundation and formerly globally head of innovation at GlaxoSmithKline. Peter is one of Ireland's foremost experts in innovation and new product and service development. Until Autumn 2009, he has been the global head of innovation excellence for GlaxoSmithKline where he led many of the worldwide, new product launches for Lucozade, Aquafresh, Sensodyne, Panadol, Ribena, alli and NiQuitin.


Peter's PhD is in Innovation. His area of research is how large firms organise for innovation. He is a faculty member and programme director in innovation with the School of Business in NUI Maynooth. He has a particular interest in radical innovation.


Peter also runs the Innovation Foundation  which is an agency that specialises in creating, incubating and implementing new business ideas for clients. In essence, Peter helps businesses grow through innovation. Most businesses will have innovation as a key priority but many need help translating the priority into a tangible, actionable, commercial innovation roadmap for their business.

His talk is Making Innovation Happen - What the Best Companies Do and How they Do it!
