Learn Innovation Methods and Practices for a Stronger KM Practice
Our world is constantly being re-created by innovation. In fact, the pace has become so intense that 8 in 10 organizations don’t survive longer than
a few cycles of innovation, dying after only a few fitful decades. However, companies who have effectively structured and formalized their approach
to innovation, reap tremendous rewards. How was this accomplished?
In this master class, you will learn new tips, obtain new tools, and gain a
proven methodology for innovation success. You'll leave with the necessary knowledge and skills to initiate and guide the delivery of Innovation, no
matter what your organizational size, structure, or purpose.
