    Program design of the Innovation Management Master Class

    The Innovation Management Master Class gives you insights into the “what”, “why” and “how” of innovation. We delve into innovation strategy: what does it consist of? And why should you innovate, as an organization? We also look at practical application: how will you organize the innovation? This includes ample attention to dispelling resistance in the organization, as well as tools for successful implementation.

    Program per day

    Day 1: What is innovation?

    We start with the basics: what innovation is, and also what it is not. This knowledge lets you work towards your own innovation strategy.

    Day 2: Innovation strategy

    On day 2, you learn how to develop an innovation strategy, and how to set up innovation in your organization. We show you five basic questions you can use to arrive at a sound innovation strategy.

    Day 3: Human-centered

    You have an innovation strategy – now it’s time to get your organization on board. At the end of the day, it’s all about the people: they’re the ones doing the work. On day 3, you learn how to tweak your organization to get all employees on board with innovation, to ensure success.
