This program is designed to help organizations change how they approach new product and service developments to encourage rather than inhibit innovation. Too often the culture, structure, and organizational processes that promote efficient short-term developments make innovation very difficult to introduce. Drawing on over five decades of MIT research on innovation, the program will provide participants proven tools, concepts, and frameworks that will enable them to responsibly identify and commercialize the innovative products and services needed to survive and grow in the face of changing markets, technologies, and consumer demand.

Specifically, participants will be presented with:

  • Tactics for dealing with the uncertainty, risk-taking, and the internal politics and resistances to change that can threaten innovation initiatives and early-stage developments
  • Ways to address common misperceptions about innovation that stifle your ability to quickly respond to a rapidly changing competitive landscape
  • Modifications to existing development processes that will make them more innovative friendly, from anticipating customer problems and enabling technologies, to creating roadmaps, to developing the innovative offerings needed to remain competitive
  • Identifying the critical roles needed for moving, selling, and marshaling innovation through your functioning organization
