Quirks Chicago & Brooklyn: AB InBev, Kraft Heinz, Amex, Mars Wrigley, and J&J Discuss Transformative Insights

Through our work enabling BigCos to operate more like startups, we’ve encountered countless leaders who have taken risks and truly transformed the role of Insights. In the Market Research community, we’ve all been talking for years about how the role of Insights is changing, and it is transforming, but at Quirks Brooklyn and Quirks Chicago Conferences this year, we wanted to get practical about where is the function now, and what changes leaders are making and approaches they are trying.

Breakthrough Ideas for Kraft Heinz through Innovation Pipeline Sprints

Stacey Cox, Consumer Insights Leader, Kraft Heinz, and Erin Faulk, VP, Lean Growth at The Garage Group, will be sharing behind-the-scenes lessons learned from the trailblazing teams at Kraft Heinz who leveraged a five-day innovation pipeline sprint approach to revitalize their portfolios and fill their three-year innovation pipelines with meaningful, consumer-driven ideas.

With iterative input from constant consumer touchpoints over five days, the teams transformed their historically linear process, their leaders grew through the process, adopting new skills, mindsets, and methods. The team will share the overall approach they took, key enablers that led to their success and lessons they plan to apply to future growth challenges.
