Managing Innovation

Your leaders and managers must commit to innovation, understand clearly what is asked of them, and have the tools to integrate innovation into everything they do - from planning to performance evaluation. In this program, leaders and managers work on creating the innovation plan for their own team, defining the best type and level of innovation for their area and using the Ideaction process as a tool to develop innovative solutions.
