Innovation as a Mindset

Course Code: AMS2313

Innovation as a Mindset is more than a modern-day slogan, it is a purposeful dedication to embodying what is necessary to thrive and survive in the future of your industry. Idea generation, problem solving, and productive collaboration are all part of the journey, but not all of it. This course will explore tangible tools and techniques to not only embrace Innovation and Creativity, but to implement it across your daily habits. Working across distributed teams within traditional and hybrid business models can put stress on the process of innovation. Participants in this course will learn to harness their creative juices through a critical thinking process and strategic perspective, that captures ideas, mobilizes thinking models, and ultimately results in forward innovation built into their every action.
