Seminar Details
All organizations exist to create value for those who receive their products and services. Leaders who effectively promote innovation are able to consistently deliver new value to customers or deliver similar value with fewer resources. The current program is designed to help leaders accelerate the pace of innovation within their organizations.

Accelerating innovation requires leaders to identify valuable opportunities or potential problems, carefully frame and formulate these problems and opportunities, derive workable solutions to them, select the most viable course of action, and cultivate an environment in which their ideas can take root and flourish. The course will offer tools and techniques to accomplish these goals.
