In most companies, innovation capability will determine growth rates and success throughout the coming years and we can even see a whole new category of professionals in corporations focusing on the development of new products, services or processes. Professional titles like Innovation Manager, Innovation Leader and Chief Innovation Officer are popping up everywhere.
In this breakfast seminar on Innovation Leadership we will highlight the very important role of the new corporate change agents – the Innovation Manager – and talk about how it is to lead innovation initiatives.
Join us on a breakfast seminar and learn from real examples on how innovation initiatives successfully transform organizations. If you can´t attend the seminar or want to dive deeper into the topic, welcome to our course Leading Innovation – 29-30 May and 14 June 2018.
