We have designed this course to improve the processes and culture in an organisation for bringing innovative new products to market.

Using a mix of theory and case study examples, you will examine the factors necessary for innovation to flourish and produce commercially successful products and services. 

In the programme we outline the concepts, structures and organisational culture necessary to enable organisations to generate ideas for innovative products, together with the processes necessary to bring ideas to reality in a commercially successful manner.

Upon completion, you will be equipped to assess the state of innovation within their own organisations and to implement practical changes to improve its innovation potential.
