About the course

At the nexus between idea and success is innovation. As the business world changes, your ability to manage innovation boosts your company’s competitive edge and encourages the prioritization of innovative leadership.

The Open Innovation for Leaders program is an opportunity to learn and apply the major concepts behind modern innovation management. Taught by the ‘Father of Open Innovation’ himself, Faculty Director Henry Chesbrough, this innovation training will give you the skills you need to implement innovative thinking and overcome organizational barriers that stifle success.

Open innovation is an open-source approach that centers innovative thinking and collaboration as tools for success. You will learn how to integrate innovative strategies that influence your company’s technology, design, and overall business operations. You will master the essential processes to effectively explore innovation incubators and implement organizational innovation throughout your company. Upon completion, you will have a personalized action plan that launches a path for innovative ideas.

Since its creation in 2003 by Professor Henry Chesbrough, open innovation is now one of the most widely adopted innovation management concepts used in mid to large-sized firms.
