Implementing Industry 4.0: Leading Change in Manufacturing and Operations
In the race to implement new manufacturing technologies and systems such as Industrial Internet of Things, it is often forgotten that factories and operations already have systems in place – and these systems may vigorously resist any change forced upon them. We believe that the first priority in implementing large scale changes in industrial operations should be to make this invisible part of the system, often referred to as a “hidden factory”, visible. The identification and creative elimination of these “hidden factories” will immediately result in an increase in a facility's “IQ,” leading to more productive and safer operations. As a critical aspect of large scale change in industrial operations, we will discuss how to develop a company culture that puts people first in the new world of Industry 4.0 and the IIoT.

Innovating in Existing Markets: Reviving Mature Products and Services
This new program is designed to help you innovate around your existing products to make them more compelling, useful, and valuable.

Innovation Ecosystems for Leaders: A New Approach to Accelerating Corporate Innovation and Entrepreneurship
Based on MIT’s research into the science of ‘innovation ecosystems’, this course will equip executives with the high-level frameworks and tools necessary to understand their innovation landscape. Specifically, it will allow them to capture ‘innovation-driven entrepreneurial advantage’ by providing leadership as stakeholders in innovation ecosystem. They will learn ways to assess both their own local ecosystem and others as potential locations for innovation centers; and ways to partner with startup entrepreneurs, research universities, ‘risk capital’ providers and other corporate/government stakeholders.

Leading People at Work: Strategies for Talent Analytics
Talent analytics is a data-driven approach to improving people-related decisions for the purpose of advancing both individual and organizational success. While business leaders still make key decisions about their workforce based on intuition, experience, advice, and guesswork, the collection and systematic analysis of data can vastly improve this decision-making. In this new course, we will explore a number of strategies used to attract and retain top talent and illustrate how these strategies are being designed and used at cutting-edge companies.
