A Century ago it would have taken days before the viewer can get the information on our program, whereas now it would take just a click of a button to do so. Innovation! The innovation process is central to not only the survival but the success of any mordern organisation. The world renowned Peter Drucker asserts this point when he defines innovation to be “the act that endows resources with a new capacity to create wealth”. Consistent with Darwinian thought; in an ever-changing world only those individuals and organisations capable of adapting and improving are able to thwart the inevitable death.
The point should not be missed that that key enablers for a consistent platform for innovation are the people, their view of the world as well as their motivation. This is why we at Leadership Business Consulting have developed the Global Strategic Innovation (GSI) Programme which allows executives, entrepreneurs and decision-makers to do a case study on how the world’s most renowned innovative companies and academic authority on innovation. In addition, the programme facilitates sessions on how the academia have systemised theory and application of innovation.
The GSI Programme takes place in Silicon Valley, a nick-name for the southern portion of San Francisco Bay Area, - a home to many of the world’s largest high-tech corporations and thousands of start-up companies. Silicon Valley has become synonymous with the word Innovation. Allow us to accompany you to one of the most informative, memorable and exciting programmes on Innovation where you are guaranteed to have an innovative view of how to implement some of the principles and applications of Innovation in your organisation or business.
