IMD Offers a New Online Course to Develop Your Strategic Leadership Skills

Being Innovative from IMD is designed for executives who need to fulfill the role of strategic leader in a time of great turbulence, specifically leaders who are struggling to think strategically in a fast moving world and who need to find innovative solutions to new and evolving scenarios.

Do you find that tried and tested managerial models are no longer applicable to the situation you face?

In a world where all the familiar secure bases of managerial practices are up for grabs – no more sustainable competitive advantages, no more clearly defined industry boundaries, no more reliable value chain partnerships, assets borrowed rather than owned – discovery-driven growth is fast becoming the new norm. In such a world, the need to be innovative has never been more crucial.

Being innovative (BI) helps you drive innovation in your organization more successfully – by providing insights into the lessons of successful innovators,
and by highlighting the limitations of current managerial models in today’s world
of constant change and uncertainty.
