Turning innovation into a management discipline, building capabilities and delivering results.

While organisations around the world recognise innovation as a necessity to remain competitive in today’s rapidly changing markets, most struggle to implement a structured process that leads to creative ideas.

The challenges result from a lack of common understanding of the buzzword ‘innovation’. Consequently, organisations around the world face issues to implement innovation standards, tools and daily practices that encourage employees in all departments and positions to be innovative.

The objective of this training is to demystify innovation and make it real and actionable with disciplined process tools and methodologies spanning all aspects of business innovation from concept to customer and from value creation to value capture.

The programme is run worldwide in multiple blue chip companies, including Siemens, 3M and GE, as well as at top business schools, such as HULT Business School, Thunderbird Schools of Global Management, Lee Kong Chian School of Business – Singapore Management University, Rotman School of Management – University of Toronto and Haskayne School of Business – University of Calgary.

The Innovation Management Certification has four levels that help you understand innovation breakthroughs, manage innovation in your organisation and build, sell and commercialise business concepts.
