Managing Innovation Strategically

Overview

Increasingly, in today's fast-paced, converging world, sustained innovation is a necessity not only to thrive but also to survive. However, for most firms, the strategies and processes associated with innovation remain vague and not professionally managed. As a result, most firms are unable to innovate and thus create new value. Amongst those who are able to create new value, few are able to capture it.

In this programme, we will learn why firms struggle to create and capture new value. We will share a number of concepts on how to implement innovation in an organisation and develop a set of practical tools and concepts that you can apply to your business.

The programme is taught by Dr Kamal Munir and Professor Stelios Kavadias, two leading experts in the field of innovation.

Thoroughly useful and enjoyable. It was incredible how much you managed to fit into two days and still keep it relaxed and engaging.
The methodology used in the teaching process was extremely clear and vivid. A thought provoking programme blending fresh academic thinking with the collective creativity of the class, to formulate tangible techniques and thinking to use in both business and life. Inspiring, informative, and implementable all in one. Thank you.
