Get ready to lead through innovation Innovation & Transformation

Innovative organisations are leveraging new business models, service innovations, and applying technologies to disrupt industries and develop new markets globally. Incumbent organisations, on the other hand, need to rediscover, harness and respond to the opportunities and challenges of strategic innovation.

In larger, and historically successful organisations, agility and the capability to innovate and transform are also strategic issues to be addressed.

Developed by NUS faculty and practitioners, this programme helps leaders and senior managers to develop and drive strategic innovation.
