Organizing for Innovation


This course is designed to provide managers with a mix of approaches and techniques to use existing information in their organizations to produce innovative products, services, and ideas. The basic premise of the course is that at the root of all innovation is effective management of innovation. Each week is organized around an important question whose answer is one key component of successful innovation management. The answer to each week’s question will provide practical tips for managers who find themselves tasked by their superiors to “be more innovative” with increasingly fewer resources. Put another way, this is not a course on strategy; it is a course designed to help you see old problems in new ways and give you skills you can use tomorrow in your organization.
