Introduction to Innovation Management

Innovation is not an art, it is a capability

Most companies that distinguish themselves from their competitors through long-term success have one thing in common: They live and act by the conviction that innovation is manageable rather than a result of purely accidental circumstances.They implement a holistic system that is directed towards effective and efficient management of their innovation activities and drive innovation projects in a structured way. Understanding the key elements of a holistic innovation management system is at the core of this course. We will build onto the A.T. Kearney House of Innovation – a framework that is compliant with the international CEN/TS 16555 und CWA 15899 standard – to learn about the relevant dimensions of successful innovation management.

Based on a solid understanding of important terminologies and the benefits of innovation management, interactive discussions and case examples will help you develop the necessary capabilities to excel with innovation management. Furthermore, our international workshop formats are a great opportunity to enrich your individual value network by getting in contact with international innovation enthusiasts.
