Does your company aim to innovate? Want more creative employees?


Organizations recognize the need for innovation in order to be more efficient and competitive. But how do you rigorously execute tried-and-true, well-thought-out strategies without crowding out innovation and creativity? More than one “innovative” company stagnated and declined because they didn't pursue, or couldn't capitalize, on new ideas.
This program focuses on the fundamental challenge of utilizing your existing capabilities while exploring innovations to support your future. You will discuss the challenges of simultaneous exploration and exploitation and learn tools and techniques to enable your organization and team to execute and innovate at the same time.
