REAL LEARNING@IMD
Dear Reader,

Many business leaders look to innovation for increasing growth and finding new opportunities. Analyzing the strategies of leading global companies, IMD Professor Cyril Bouquet presents five lessons to boost innovation practices in his article Still waiting for the ‘Eureka Moment’. Professor Bouquet explores what it means to compete in complex, interconnected environments where traditional recipes for success are quickly becoming obsolete during The Strategy Challenge (TSC) program.

Innovation often comes with an entrepreneurial state-of-mind. IMD Executive MBA participants will meet with leading entrepreneurs during their Discovery Expedition to Silicon Valley this September. Jim Pulcrano, an Executive Director at IMD and member of the EMBA teaching team, outlines the traits of leading entrepreneurs in his latest Tomorrow's Challenge article.

And, do you know where your country ranks in competitiveness? IMD’s World Competitiveness Center recently unveiled the 2011 results from the World Competitiveness Yearbook.
Best regards,

The IMD Webletter Team
