The Applied Innovation Program

Build your strategic leadership skills with this program. Its goal is to activate a mind-set that enables you to become a proactive innovator driving a culture of innovation. Focused on strategic thinking and strategic intent in the face of complexity, ambiguity, and risk, it transforms you into a contextual leader with the capacity for flexibility, agility and non-rational decision making.

The program uses a business case study to help you assess key issues and vulnerabilities faced by a supply chain. Through this interactive exercise, you gain a template that you can use to build your own innovation framework, applying the different perspectives and insights obtained through the program.

This program is recommended for seasoned candidates with strategic-level experience.
