Which business innovation strategy will accelerate change?

Do you worry about being left behind as technology changes the way you work? The right business innovation strategy gets you to market faster and grows your profits. 

Navigating today’s business environment requires an appreciation for how innovation comes about, what makes economic or social impact possible, and how an organization’s culture might be developed to support such activities. 

Driving Strategic Innovation is a powerful alliance between IMD and MIT Sloan. Designed to change the way you think about innovation and technology strategy, it gives you a better toolbox for new solutions and business model innovation.

You explore your own approach and style to innovation and leave with a roadmap which supports your company’s strategic goals and accelerates change.

Successfully manage the (often unclear) front end of the innovation process and navigate increasingly unpredictable value chains.

Foster innovative ideas, practice rapid prototyping, and engage in business model innovation.

Achieve a more innovative organizational culture and become an effective leader of innovation.
