Description

Unique in North America, the Masters Certificate in Innovation Leadership is both comprehensive and practical.

Very few managers, directors and senior executives have the word innovation strategy in their title, yet they regularly encounter thorny challenges which could benefit from being approached in new ways, with fresh eyes. In these cases, cultivating innovative thinking takes specific know-how – tools, techniques and approaches – to systematically pull the levers which enable the creativity and insights to flow. Getting to a solution which adds value and delivers results in a new way is a matter of understanding and following an innovation process.

Forget innovation for innovation’s sake. It’s about solutions which add value and deliver results in new ways.

With insights gleaned from decades of global experience in the innovation strategy space across all industries and sectors, this program has been designed help leaders build the strategic and process innovation capability required for success in today’s uncertain times.

Who should attend

This innovation certification program will benefit leaders charged with any size innovation mandate – from developing strategies to developing offerings to leading teams and influencing a culture of innovation, including:

  • Vice-Presidents, directors and senior managers
  • Line leaders in all areas of organizations that can benefit from innovative thinking; in particular Product Development, Service, Marketing and Sales, Operations and IT
  • Staff leaders who are accountable for improving their organization’s innovation culture and skills (e.g., HR, Strategy or Project Management)
