Certificate in Leading a Culture that Innovates and Executes

  • Excellence in leading sustainable innovation has everything to do with how a leader creates a culture where innovation and creativity thrive in every corner.

    While many organizations focus on addressing problems, the most successful ones focus on raising the bar by creating a culture of innovation. Contrary to popular belief, the success of winning organizations rests not on ‘innovative’ leaders, but on leaders who can create, lead and sustain a culture of innovation.

    This program will address the critical elements of creating such a culture. While it will focus on the role of leadership in culture, it will identify and investigate the important underlying principles of the cultural experience. It will answer the fundamental questions such as What is culture? What is a culture of innovation? What are the advantages of a culture of innovation? What are the barriers and the enablers? What levers can I pull to give me the best results?

    An Innovation Culture empowers organizations to drive innovation, to attract existing and future talent, and to ensure future growth.

    This course is a component of the Masters Certificate in Innovation Management and counts towards your completion of masters certificate requirements.
