Procter & Gamble Australia Managing Director Says Difficult To Foster Innovation In The Country

March 7, 2013: 12:00 AM EST
Procter & Gamble Australia managing director Maile Carnegie said promoting innovation in Australia is more difficult than it should be, due to the high cost of doing business, complicated regulations, and lack of focus and skills in some sections of the economy. For example, Oral B encountered significant concerns and obstacles when it launched a new toothpaste the company claims will help improve health care in Australia, according to Carnegie. Carnegie said she first worked at a local retailer of fruits and vegetables, and she also worked part time selling safety signs to construction companies. Roger Martin, dean at the Rotman School of Management, is the business leader that she admires the most, Carnegie said.
