Make innovation work for you

Every organisation today faces disruption on an unprecedented scale. For their leaders, there are two
choices: Innovate, or perish.


Get the tools to sustain, rekindle or inject agility into your team, department or business unit with this practical online programme. Learn anywhere, anytime: all programme content is fully tablet and phone compatible.

Discover how to manage and spark innovation and take practical steps to manifest it in your organisation.

Are your competitors driving you out of the marketplace with a new digital offering? Perhaps a rival’s latest unconventional business model is running rings around yours. Or has digitisation simply gifted new firms in your industry with quicker and better ways of working? Every innovation challenge has a solution.

There are endless ways to innovate. Choose your focus. Work out what you need from innovation and use your own ideas as a force for change. Figure out where the weak spots are in your organisation and set an innovation challenge to tackle them head on, with a new toolkit of skills and capabilities.

You’ll finish the programme with your own innovation action plan: a way to practically apply the findings from your innovation challenge, with one-to-one feedback provided during your experiment phase.

Professor Julian Birkinshaw – a 2017 Thinkers50 top global management thinker – will guide your journey, with live, interactive sessions and will transform the way you think about innovation forever.
