The Need for Innovation Speed

We live in an ever-changing, fast-paced digital era. To succeed in business today, organizations need to be aware of the trends that affect their business: From understanding the full landscape of growth opportunities, to rapidly adapting to fast-paced change in the business environment while driving change within the organization and to bringing innovation to market at speed in order to meet rapidly shifting customer needs. Furthermore, and as innovation at its core is a social phenomenon, more than ever today, focus should be placed on aligning, energizing and mobilizing stakeholders also from afar in order to ensure a high level of motivation and active contribution to achieve an accelerated outcome.

The accelerated shift to remote work has created an opportunity for organizations to introduce new ways of working. A technology-enabled and inclusive approach to accelerating innovation enables organizations to harness the intelligence, skills and expertise of internal and external stakeholders and to co-create solutions to pressing problems while building a learning culture and driving change.

    • Be assigned a company case
    • Learn about and reflect on global trends, choosing the ones that you find relevant and that will most likely highly impact the business most
