Rapid technological change demands a new understanding of innovation – and the agile ecosystem to support it.

In an ever-changing business landscape, it’s hard to keep up, let alone get ahead of the pack. Traditional product and service innovations are often slow and expensive. To create value, you need to reinvent the business model itself. From new customer channels to enhanced value streams to novel pricing schemes, Strategic Innovation: Disrupting the Business Model will open your organization to unseen opportunity.

Move beyond incremental improvements. Instead, reimagine how to create leaps in shareholder value. Let Carnegie Mellon’s renowned faculty and seasoned industry leaders help you to recognize new possibilities for - and threats to - your organization. Learn to foster nimble, creative thinking and shake up your culture from the inside out. Experience hands-on application of cutting edge technological advances.

Don’t let changing environmental conditions leave you behind – transform ahead of the curve and ride it to success.
