The Innovative Organization

Go Inside the Program

Innovation drives the modern enterprise. Entrepreneurial leaders of successful firms thrive on capturing and capitalizing on the opportunities created by new technologies, new markets and new ways of doing business.

But are you successfully promoting an innovative business culture within your organization? To stay relevant in today’s dynamic marketplace, complacency is not an option. Companies must continually seek ways to ideate, innovate and push through new ideas – from concept to implementation – in order to remain competitive.

Leverage New Ideas across your Organization 
The Innovative Organization is a fresh take on corporate innovation that prepares managers and leaders to embrace the challenges and opportunities of creating a truly ambidextrous enterprise -- one that is capable of both entrepreneurial opportunity development and excellent execution (both essential but potentially conflicting activities). Topics include:

  • Customer-centric innovation
  • Open innovation
  • Lean innovation management
  • Trendspotting
  • Corporate venturing
  • Sustainability as an innovation strategy
  • Mastering the influence to move the organization

Tapping into the expertise of distinguished Haas faculty, as well as prominent Silicon Valley executives, this five-day program will inspire and motivate you to truly start building your “innovative organization.”
