Can innovation be learned? More importantly, how do you make it happen throughout your organization? We think innovators aren’t born...they’re made.
Built on decades on research by the preeminent authorities on innovation, Clayton Christensen, Jeff Dyer and Hal Gregersen, Innovator’s Accelerator helps highly motivated professionals develop techniques that spark transformation and turn emerging leaders into innovators.
This unique workshop is a condensed version of a 6-week program designed to accelerate the innovation skills of individuals and organizations, and will focus on the five essential innovation skills needed to begin to break the confines of traditional thinking and ignite bold ideas.
