Jacobson Dives into Effective Innovation at Insurance AI and Analytics USA

April 17, 2019

CHICAGO – In order to bring innovative ideas into reality, insurers must cultivate agile mindsets and processes within their companies. Margaret Resce Milkint, managing partner of The Jacobson Group, will lead an interactive workshop that provides individuals an opportunity to debate and share their experiences on this topic at the Insurance AI and Analytics USA conference.

In her session, “Get Agile to Effectively Adopt Innovation,” individuals will discuss three common challenges in creating an agile and innovative culture:

  • Encouraging cross-functional collaboration
  • Motivating employees during times of transformation
  • Setting teams up for success

Attendees will walk away with practical solutions and strategies they can implement within their own companies to help teams flourish.

“Traditionally, departments within insurance companies are siloed, making cross-functional collaboration difficult,” said Milkint. “As innovation becomes more important, so does a company’s ability to act quickly, through agile processes and forward-thinking attitudes. This session provides an opportunity for attendees to connect with peers facing the same challenges.”

The presentation will take place on May 3 at 9:00 a.m. CDT in Chicago. For more information on the event, visit
