What do I get from this program?
This program should help you reflect on your previous experiences with corporate innovation and start to shape the way you want to continue developing your innovation capabilities. Apart from getting to know the people who have already mastered certain frameworks, strategies and methodologies used in this area of expertise, this course will also provide a unique opportunity to test new innovation solutions by creating business models and prototypes and by applying different sets of tools and methods.

What’s the typical profile of the participant?
