You have hired phenomenal people. Tap into their knowledge of markets, products, systems, and ideas to unleash tomorrow’s breakthroughs.

Evolve or die – a motto as true for start-ups as it is for corporations. But with corporations, it is often the very by-products of success that get in the way, from a sense of infallibility to the top-down lines and boxes of corporate bureaucracy.

This course will help you unlock the power of individuals and teams across the organization to foster innovation. Learn to tap into the collective through design thinking, assemble and manage teams across silos, and rework structures and systems to create a scaffolding for innovation.

  • Develop a personal plan to effectively lead innovation
  • Interact with leading industry executives who have successfully led innovation initiatives
