Innovation is an integral component of driving organisational success. When implemented in an interconnected and systematic way, it delivers both economic growth and business benefit. Disruptive innovations are redefining businesses and reshaping economies. It is therefore important to understand the interconnectedness of ecosystems that help to define “where to play” to create game-changing opportunities.
You will be introduced to a range of tools and techniques and shown how, when and where to use them to achieve optimum results from innovation.
This programme is appropriate for managers and decision makers from any industry who want to improve their organisation's capacity to formulate and implement innovative strategies. It is equally suited for professionals from established companies who want to develop new revenue sources or from start-ups launching new offerings. While no specific training is required, participants should have a basic understanding of management principles.
Learning materials, lunch and refreshments will be provided. Upon completion of the programme, participants will be eligible for the Certificate of Professionalism in Innovation Practice.
