During this course you will be exposed to a number of case studies on international businesses which will enable you to examine the following issues:

  • The role of the leader as innovation architect;

  • Why are certain companies considered to be innovative;

  • How to entrench 'bottom-up' innovation in big organisations;​​​​

  • Instilling a creative culture in your organisation;

  • Creating highly innovative teams;

  • Learning how to reframe problems; and

  • Rethinking the innovation challenge ​​
