In an economic downturn, many companies slow or stall new investments. Yet, for many companies—whether in India or around the globe—this represents a missed opportunity. Because a downturn creates new needs and opportunities and reduces competition, it's an ideal time to invest in innovations that will bear fruit once the downturn has ended. This program helps you identify and invest in emerging opportunities, minimize risks, and foster innovation-driven growth—helping you position your company for greater success when India's economic conditions improve.
By balancing corporate strategy with effective execution, this leadership development program presents new ways to help you manage innovation day to day—and help your company sustain competitive advantage over the long term. You'll also acquire the global vision to invest in new opportunities while your competitors are slowing down, seize a greater proportion of market share, and emerge with a distinct competitive advantage.
Focused on the practices of today's most successful companies in India and around the world, this program offers strategic insights into a wide range of innovation challenges and opportunities. Specifically, you'll explore new approaches to aligning product development with corporate strategy, reinventing strategic innovation systems, assessing disruptive technologies, and bringing leading-edge products and services to market.
