Implementing Effective Innovation Processes (Credit Bearing to Graduate Certificate in Applied Innovation)

Overview

Launching a new initiative, product or service triggered by innovation is often a daunting and complex process that is surrounded with risks. Developing new product and/or service prototypes through lean innovation and agile approaches, rapid experimentation and then re-embedding them back into the main organization process architecture can significantly improve bottom line with less resources, hasten the go to market processes and reduce the risk of unintended consequences of cannibalizing the organizations' other revenue channels.
