THE NEED FOR INNOVATION LEADERSHIP

Traditionally, business leaders expect and encourage innovation in their research and development (R&D) divisions. Today, amid fierce competition, businesses must encourage innovation in every function and at every level. By offering training in design thinking, executive education programs and leadership development firms give their clients the skills they need to help their organizations thrive.

Stanford's d.school, the University of Toronto's Rotman School of Management, Citrix, The University of Minnesota's Carlson School of Management, ESADE, and California College of Art are among the organizations offering training in components of design thinking -- a recognized and effective approach to innovation pioneered by the global design and innovation firm IDEO.

MUST-HAVES IN DESIGN THINKING TRAINING

Innovationship's new guide identifies "three aspects we believe to be critical for delivering excellence in Innovation Leadership Training -- the must-haves for any program to offer meaningful and effective education," says Innovationship co-founder Leon Segal, Ph.D.

"For over two decades, we have been practicing and providing education in design thinking. Our Innovation Leadership Training (ILT) is a fast and seamless way to integrate this approach as part of a current offering," said Segal. "We can take your clients through a learning journey that results in original solutions and exposes them to the unique perspective and skills necessary for innovation. ILT can be customized to fit your offerings, adding a new and essential dimension to your client's experience."
