Here’s a sample of what participants have to say about the value of the Strategic Innovation for Community Health programme.
The programme helped give me a lot of confidence. Change and getting out of your comfort zone can be difficult to deal with, but the professors taught me change is not difficult. They emphasised that you don’t need to do it all over night. Rather, take small steps and change bit by bit. Think where you want to go.

As an organisation we knew that we needed to move to the next level and we had to do it innovatively, However, we did not know how to do it. This programme was an answer to prayer for me as the leader, I had an idea of next level, but I did not know how to map it, I was also fearful of making mistakes. Attending this course has given me courage to begin leading our organisation to that next level through innovation.

The programme proved to be more than I expected. It gave me a systematic framework to work through the questions I had. I gained valuable insights such as how to develop the innovator’s DNA as a leader, how to better target and rally key stakeholders around organizational change, and how to work as a team to generate and sift through ideas to find a winning solution. I do not have the answers to all the questions I came with, but I feel like I have the right tools to figure out these answers progressively with my team.
It’s a great programme because it has a way of tickling the mind to recreate ideas that are a solution in one way or another. with this programme, it’s not about thinking the ideas and immediately celebrating results but it gives the strategic view as well the process to have a systematic, logical and coherent flow of implementable solutions.

I thank INSEAD and J&J for taking and leading this initiative. This programme helped me personally to build an understanding on the global healthcare challenges and how the economic and business model can help to tackle this challenge.

They provided in-depth analysis and personal reflections that were both frank and insightful. The change management simulations, group work and real-life video examples used made it easier to understand the concepts being discussed, enabled me to appreciate the variety of approaches used to address health care challenges, Business Model Innovation and Change Management.
