Summer School Innovation Management
Innovation – Creativity – Performance
The digital transformation has fundamentally fueled the acceleration of innovation cycles: What’s new today is already old tomorrow.
In order to stay in the game, corporations are investing in innovation management, sometimes in the form of freelance experts, sometimes by
even making an innovation manager part of their team.
As volatile and accidental innovation and creativity might seem, researchers have found strategies and factors to boost them, be it on an
individual, a team or a strategic level. Innovation management is the combination of all these strategies.
We want you to get to know those factors and apply them into your everyday life making this a big step on your future career ladder.
