About the course

Indian firms lag behind their peers in innovation-related capabilities. As India seeks to grow rapidly over the next several years, Indian firms need to ramp up their level of innovation. In this program, we examine how to build and sustain innovation-related capabilities.


Increasingly, innovation has become one of the critical drivers of competitive advantage. Firms that innovate have high profitability, high growth rates and higher chances of survival. Despite the well-known benefits of innovation, firms find it difficult to be truly innovative.
