Managing Innovation and Change: Emerging Trends

Course Description

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.

During this training, 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. We will identify important emerging trends in innovation, and their implications for innovation management will be explored.
