Learn to innovate in a disruptive, uncertain world
Innovation in the Age of Disruption is an online programme that enables you to understand how to leverage innovation to respond to change, particularly change driven by digital transformation. The programme focuses on the people, process, and philosophy of innovative companies to help you develop your ability to innovate by generating more ideas and putting them into action. It explores the behaviours of innovation leaders, and subsequently the process of how innovators turn their ideas into reality. It also explains how leaders and organisations adapt their culture, structure and processes to make room for innovation. These insights are based on research of more than 400 businesses, including the world’s most innovative companies.
More specifically, the programme offers insights into ideation, design thinking, agile methodologies, and business model innovation. However, rather than offering these as fragmented approaches, this programme integrates these disparate frameworks into a single, end-to-end framework for testing innovative ideas, and enables you to understand how an organisation that is defined by and developed around execution can adapt itself to foster and drive innovation.
Whether you are caught in the middle of digital (or other) disruption, or you want to innovate within your organisation, Innovation in the Age of Disruption will provide you with a comprehensive set of tools to adapt to today’s VUCA world.
