Our Program:
The entrepreneurial spirit is desperately needed in today’s corporate setting—it is a matter of survival. Understand why as an Apple succeeds, a formerly successful company like Kodak is dying. Is it simply a matter of product obsolescence or could it have been avoided. The answer lies in managing the innovation process—innovation/reinvention, execution and creating a culture of change. Innovation isn’t just about creating a new product or service but also involves processes and virtually everything we do in our corporate lives. But innovation on its own isn’t enough—it needs to be supported by a culture of change and the ability to execute. Learn how to successfully create an enduring innovation process.
