This program is intended for public and private sector organizations, including individuals and teams, as well as anyone involved in generating new ideas, products or processes; delivering business growth; or ensuring optimal customer experience.

About the course

When we think of innovation, we often focus of the realm of products – shiny, larger, smaller, faster, connected products. More often, an innovation focus gives us the ability to improve processes, services, and even our business model and the way the firm behaves and competes.

One significant and underappreciated barrier to innovation, however, is a perceived lack of resources, where in reality, most organizations have all the resources they need, yet those resources remain mired in complexity and unnecessary processes.

This interactive session provides managers and executives with the perspective and tools necessary to identify resource-rich opportunities and free up the time, space, and funds they need to focus on what matters most. Discussions and exercises will help you to align your team and enable them to see things differently.
