For nonprofit organization leaders like you charged with creating substantial or radical new value for stakeholders and your organization, this program will take you on an eye-opening exploration of the concepts of innovation and social entrepreneurship and what these new ideas mean for individual organizations and the nonprofit sector as a whole.
Under the guidance of our expert faculty, you’ll begin by looking at innovation and creativity and how you can begin to think differently about fulfilling the mission of your organizations. You’ll look closely at the design process for new ideas and learn tools for prototyping, which allow you to make quick decisions about the potential success or failure of new ideas. You’ll then turn to the topic of leadership – what skills you must have as a leader of innovation, how to build a strong team, and how to motivate the team in a high-risk and highly entrepreneurial environment.
