Leading Innovation - Boost your organization´s innovation capability

Why now?

  • Do you need to boost your organization´s innovation performance?
  • Do you suspect that your organization doesn´t have the capabilities now to fully exploit innovation as a primary tool for building a strong and sustainable position in the new business landscape?
  • Do you have a nagging feeling that a certain lack of innovation leadership capabilities currently might be the most important bottleneck for progress in this area?

And by the way; “54% of innovating companies struggle to bridge the gap between innovation strategy and business strategy” PwC’s Innovation Benchmark 2017

Why innovation?

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.

Why this course?

“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 gives you the inspiration and an overview of the know-how needed to design, establish and manage sustainable innovation as a prioritised dimension in developing and managing your company for survival and success.
