Created by:Delivered by:
Taught by:

Improve your ability to manage creativity and to lead an innovation strategy in businesses, schools, hospitals, governments, and other complex organizations and institutions, by diagnosing likely innovation failures before they occur.

This course is intended for people seeking to improve their ability to manage creativity, innovation and change. Using an “innovation constraints” framework that draws on social science research and on insights from business practice, participants will learn how to best manage people (be they co-workers, bosses, customers, clients, friends or any other stakeholders) when innovation is the goal. While we will discuss numerous examples of technological innovation, this is not a “management of technology” course; rather, this is a course focused on understanding and managing people engaged in creation, innovation and positive change, regardless of the context.
