On Saturday 3rd November 2012, we brought you an exclusive one-day master class with Rowan Gibson – the International Thought Leader on Innovation – Live and in Person.
Innovation is now recognized globally as the core driver of growth, strategic renewal and long-term business performance, the “last frontier” in differentiating your organization. Leaders everywhere acknowledge this fact, but in most organizations, innovation is still more of a buzzword than a core competence. Very few companies have so far managed to build a corporate-wide capability for innovation that consistently creates new wealth and competitive advantage. Indeed, turning innovation from rhetoric to reality remains one of the greatest leadership challenges of our times. What today’s senior executives need is a practical guide to “Innovation Excellence” – a program that explains exactly how to build and sustain a deep, enterprise capability for innovation. The Rowan Gibson Innovation Masterclass was an exclusive education program – in association with Training Solutions Limited – that was designed to meet this pressing need.
Drawing on the market-proven lessons from his groundbreaking bestseller “Innovation to the Core”, international thought leader Rowan Gibson provided a blueprint for transforming the way companies innovate. His unique masterclass, filled with cutting-edge tools, processes and practices, equipped the event attendees to build a corporate innovation system that actually works. The practice of what was taught will position will position any organization to to out-innovate the competitors, generate new growth opportunities, and make innovation an enduring way of life inside your organization.
