Innovation drives the modern enterprise. Entrepreneurial leaders of successful firms thrive on capturing and capitalizing on the opportunities created by new technologies, new markets, and new ways of doing business. But are you successfully promoting an innovative business culture within your organization? To stay relevant in today’s dynamic marketplace, complacency is not an option. Companies must continually seek ways to ideate, innovate, and push through new ideas – from concept to implementation – in order to remain competitive.
The Innovative Organization is a fresh take on corporate innovation that prepares managers and leaders to embrace the challenges and opportunities of creating a truly ambidextrous enterprise -- one that is capable of both entrepreneurial opportunity development and excellent execution (both essential but potentially conflicting activities). The program provides the frameworks and tools for executives to capitalize on the trends and opportunities of today’s rapid innovation cycles.
