Advanced Certificate in Business Innovation Strategy
(12 hours – excluding requisites)
This certificate is for those who are serious about leading innovation, regardless of these efforts being internal (improving business processes), or external (developing new products, services, and lines of business). Beyond those who have innovation in their job title (explicit or implicit), those who are responsible for driving top-line growth, managing portfolios, or tasked with creating new business models will also benefit. Disruptive innovations are not random acts of nature; there is a pattern to the phenomena, and the Business Innovation Strategy practitioner faculty will show you how. From the radical innovations that shake up entire industries to the many small innovations that perfect the execution of already successful organizations, this specialty will show you how to treat innovation as a process, one to be managed and turned into a driver of profits and growth, from idea to value creation for the “new normal” that will set the framework to produce innovative ideas from the bottom up in the organization so critical to success. This specialty is relevant across industries and continents.
