Growth, Business Innovation and Innovative-Design Programs

Innovation-driven growth at the organizational level requires a multidisciplinary approach. To achieve that growth, leaders must adopt a strategy for fostering new thinking and, blueprint in hand, convey that strategy both laterally and vertically. It all comes down to the communication: disseminate knowledge and best practices, and work toward organization-wide acceptance, from planning to execution.

Kellogg’s expert faculty offers the latest in the strategy of innovation and effective techniques for adopting it across the organization. Whether participants are already well versed in innovation and growth or are seeking out a sound foundation in the fundamentals, they’ll return to the office with a fresh perspective, the process for implementing cultural transformation and the strategic agility to iterate and improve.

Our live virtual programs are built to deliver a world-class experience that’s as thought-provoking and rewarding as our in-person offerings. Acquire and understand the tools to succeed in a changing business landscape. Our in-person programs are held on the beautiful lakefront campus of Northwestern University in Evanston and Chicago.
