Innovation is a contact sport.
This course asks learners to view innovation through the lens of collaboration – as a phenomenon that occurs horizontally across boundaries. Learners will gain insights and skills to design and guide the conversations, platforms, and ecosystems that lead to shared-value innovation. The course brings together theories and insights from a variety of disciplines including management, psychology, and social science. Understanding how to design and guide collaborative innovation processes is a vital skillset and knowledgebase in the 21st Century economy, defined more by open networks than the rigid hierarchies of the past.
