Course Timeline:
There are different types of innovation. The three which people usually associate with innovation are product innovation, process innovation, and service innovation.
Not all organisations innovate. Even in organisations which do, innovation can be difficult to initiate, develop and deliver.
To stay ahead of the competition, it is important that organisations continuously innovate and push the innovation frontier.
In this lesson, you will hear professionals discuss the prominent innovation challenges that businesses face in managing innovation in the core business.
Innovation in the core business is about changing and improving what the organisation does today.
Key enablers of successful innovation in core business
Disruptive innovation is a challenge which all organisations can face – an organisation may either be the disrupter or be disrupted by innovation.
In order to manage potential disruptions, innovation needs to be recognised as a core organisational capability.
In this lesson, Krsto interviews Rashik Parmar, MBE, IBM Distinguished Engineer and Technical Executive – Europe, to discover how IBM has modified its business approach to support and manage disruptive and discontinuous innovation.
The music industry provides a fantastic example of disruptive innovation.
“No matter who you are, most of the smartest people work for someone else.”
Open innovation requires the purposeful selection of external partners, to respond to a specific type of innovative problem.
The key to successful open innovation hinges on choosing the right type of openness and the right types of external partners.
In this lesson, you will explore design thinking (DT), which is used to craft ideas into something actionable.
While there are lots of ideas floating around in organisations, ideas that can be realised to solve a problem or set of problems don’t just exist – rather they must be searched for or hunted out, evolved and crafted to fit the problems at hand.
In this lesson, Professor Tyrone Pitsis interviews Ian Smith, former Lead Innovation Architect at IBM, to discover how they have embedded design thinking into their business.
Open innovation and design thinking make the protection and management of knowledge and intellectual property (IP) a crucial aspect of innovation management.
Intellectual property (IP) infringement can result in lost profits, reputation damage, reduced market share and diminished competitive advantage.
