As part of SMU's Graduate Certificate in Applied Innovation, participants will be introduced two key levers of making innovation work in order to create an ambitious, strategic innovation portfolio, comprising core, adjacent and transformational innovations: technology and business model innovation. Participants will learn what it takes to develop a well governed innovation management framework to avoid the classical traps of ‘good’ innovation management in terms of strategy (e.g. no coherent innovation strategy), structure (too many silos), process (e.g. no rapid prototyping approach) and innovation culture (e.g. too little emphasis on people-oriented building blocks of culture such as values, behavior and climate).
