Abstract

My public works are a combination of a number of varied examples that when combined demonstrate that during my 26 year career I have not only contributed to but have significantly affected daily practice by implementing innovation more effectively within the non-invasive medical devices field. In the following sections I will reflect on these public works and in context outline how through both institutional and work based learning I gained and imparted new knowledge to my field of expertise. I will explore the barriers to successful implementation of innovation and will elaborate on the specific challenges faced as I transitioned within, and between organizations and up the leadership ladder. I will explore how I overcame these varied challenges and created new opportunities along the way implementing a number of innovative products into the global marketplace. I will demonstrate how I established and managed innovative organizations with virtual structured teams of uniquely competent professionals across dispersed geographic locations, encompassing the required expertise in all the highly technical and clinical areas needed to allow for more effective implementation of complex medical products. I will then expand this discussion further to evidence my more effective implementation of a number of innovations. Furthermore, I will illustrate my progression and provide examples of my journey to becoming a pragmatic entrepreneur. I will conclude by detailing and critiquing my unique contribution to the field, supporting my claim that I have; ‘Implemented innovation more effectively within the highly regulated non-invasive medical device field’.
