Block 3: Strategic & Innovation Management (2 days)
Organisations frequently need to reconsider their market relevance and their position as the national and global environments around them are changing. Innovation Management furnishes a strong and creative angle tool to understand the strategic management principles and demonstrates how to apply these principles within the context of a competitive, sustainable environment, including the innovative forces that are redefining organisations. Considering all these elements, this part of the mini-MBA provides tools and perspectives available to set up analyses, to identify strategic challenges and to design possible organisational responses. These issues are explored through a global view of different forms of leadership and operational excellence while embracing technology and out-of-the-box thinking to keep the organisation from being disrupted.
