Managing Innovation

Learn and Apply Innovation Practices as Your Cohort Participates in an Innovation Tournament

Innovation is often compared to lightning or flying sparks, spontaneous and uncontrollable. Although randomness and serendipity clearly play a role in innovation, and no single analytical tool can innovate in itself, the innovation process can be managed effectively through a set of scientific principles and analytical tools.

This course presents key scientific principles that underlie successful innovation and frameworks and methods for mastering innovation. Learners will discover how to manage and benefit from the process of innovation as they generate creative and innovative ideas to help their company. Participants will see how innovation creates stronger, more capable, and more profitable organizations.

A combination of expertise, the instructors’ own collective experiences, and the science behind a process-based approach to innovation will provide both theoretical and practical insights into this opportunity to fundamentally change the way we work.
