Leading Innovation

GK# 4518

Course Overview

TOP

In today's complex and competitive business environment, most companies rank innovation as one of their top strategic priorities. In a recent study conducted by the Boston Consulting Group, more than three quarters of the business leaders surveyed ranked innovation as their top—or one of their top three—strategic priorities.

The challenge is that many organizations struggle to truly innovate. Often they are restricted by a narrow definition of innovation or are limited by thinking of innovation relative to their industry or competitors.

This one-day workshop helps leaders properly implement or support real innovation.
