Cambridge Making Innovation Happen Programme – 13th-17th May
Leading and sustaining competitive advantage Maintaining competitive advantage is key to the ongoing success of any business.
In the current climate, innovation can no longer be considered the remit of CEOs or senior management – it must be looked upon as a broader capability that is encouraged and instilled throughout an organisation.
Innovation comes in many forms, from business models to new products and basic technology development. What is key for organisations is to foster an environment that supports innovative thinking, developing a wider ecosystem that broadens the input and capability of the business.
This five-day programme is designed for senior executives to consider all the activities required to elevate innovation as a core organisational management capability; to create a culture that innovates consistently, systematically and with tangible results. At the end of the five days, participants leave with a clear action plan of how to take the next steps in driving this innovative management capability within their own organisations.
