EXMN662: Leading Innovation
Prepares students to lead innovative teams by fostering awareness of their own and others’ default tendencies, as innovators, and by fostering the adoption of systemic creative problem-solving approaches. The course draws on Creative Problem Solving and Design Thinking models to provide students with a three-stage process for leading innovation that blends theory and practice. Students will better understand processes of innovation and will apply these processes to complex problems. Final portion of class is dedicated to a practicum exercise, which students can choose to do in their own workplace or another context of their choice, in which students facilitate a Creative Problem Solving session.
