Why a course in leading innovation?

In most companies, innovation capability will determine growth rates and success throughout the coming years.

Increased competition on truly global markets, rapid technical progress, the ongoing digital transformation and constantly changing customer expectations and behaviors are some of the reasons why an increasing number of companies consider innovation to be at the core of their business. In order to stay successful in the future, you need not only to respond to current customer and organizational needs. You also need to anticipate future development – seek out new ideas, scout new trends, products and services. And most of all you need tools and processes that enable you to meet future demand, which implies being able to change rapidly and effectively.

Innovation must be treated as any other mission-critical activity. It’s about knowing how and when to do it – but also when not to innovate. Companies need to build a strong professional foundation using a proactive and systematic way of working. This might seem obvious but the reality is that despite a vision and intention, most companies are still stuck in their traditional ways of thinking and in conventional ways of working.

This course is about how to generate growth through innovation initiatives. Are you looking for corporate growth? Do you want to bring your organization into the future? Do you need to boost your organization’s innovation performance?

Leading Innovation gives you the knowledge and skills needed to establish and manage a sustainable innovation initiative in your organization, on both corporate and business unit level.
