Managing Radical Change for High Growth

A Five Days Exclusive Master class program….

Training Course Description

This Disruptive Innovation training focuses on one of the most important challenges facing all businesses today – innovation. Product and business life cycles are shortening, and the intensity of competition is rising globally. Innovation is now emerging as the most strategically significant aspect of business operations. This takes two forms: (i) innovation that improves product and process efficiency and (ii) innovation that results in a radically different way of doing business. The first can be termed an enabling innovation, the second a disruptive innovation. An enabling innovation will improve performance in existing operations. A disruptive innovation will take an organisation into a differentiated and potentially leading position.
