This executive education program will explore the concepts of innovation and social entrepreneurship and what these new ideas mean for individual organizations and the nonprofit sector as a whole.
The program will begin by looking at the topic of innovation and creativity and how nonprofit leaders can begin to think differently about fulfilling the mission of their organizations. Participants will start to think about the design process for new ideas and learn tools for prototyping, which allow nonprofit leaders to make quick decisions about the potential success or failure of new ideas. The program will then shift to the topic of leadership in these types of organizations – what skills the leader must have, how to build a strong team, and how to motivate the team in this high risk and highly entrepreneurial environment
