Growth and Innovation Week

You may combine Driving Organic Growth with Creating and Leading a Culture of Innovation to participate in Growth and Innovation Week. Combining the programs provides leaders with the framework to capitalize on opportunities for innovation and growth in their companies.

Driving Organic Growth through Innovation
Top Kellogg faculty and industry leaders present a rigorous and market-tested approach to drive reliable and sustainable organic growth initiatives. Participants gain tools for strategic planning, decision making, managing risks, and securing market position for innovations. Participants learn to think more holistically about innovation and growth, and leave the program able to put a growth process into action. 

Creating and Leading a Culture of Innovation
In this program, you will be challenged to take an introspective look at your own leadership style, values, and impact—and how to create an innovation mindset and culture. Many companies focus on streamlining and cost-cutting to achieve short-term earnings growth. Winning managers, though, are always seeking new ways to create value by launching new products and services, entering new markets, or rethinking established processes.
