HARVARD BUSINESS SCHOOL OFFERS EXECUTIVE EDUCATION PROGRAM DESIGNED FOR COMPANIES TO ACHIEVE INNOVATION-DRIVEN GROWTH
Mumbai: Harvard Business School (HBS) will host an executive education program, Driving Growth Through Innovation–India, from at the HBS classroom, Taj Lands End, Mumbai. Designed for leaders responsible for the development and marketing of new products and services, participants will examine the latest tools and strategies for managing today’s diverse risks and to position their company for future success. Driving Growth Through Innovation—India is being offered for the second time in Mumbai this August following the successful launch of the inaugural session last year.
“Today executives are challenged to do more with less, yet have to keep their companies at the forefront of innovation. The Driving Growth Through Innovation – India program explores new approaches to aligning product development with corporate strategy, reinventing strategic innovation systems, assessing disruptive technologies and bringing innovative products and services to the market. ” Stefan H. Thomke, William Barclay Harding Professor of Business Administration, and faculty chair of HBS Executive Education in India and "Driving Growth Through Innovation—India."
Focused on the core challenges of managing innovation in an evolving marketplace, this program will empower participants to develop and market innovative products and services by identifying and leveraging new opportunities. By balancing corporate strategy with effective execution, this leadership training program presents new methodologies and tools to help executives manage innovation day to day and to help a company sustain long-term competitive advantage.
“Through dynamic lectures, classroom discussions, real-world case studies, and small group activities, Driving Growth Through Innovation—India explores new ways of thinking about managing growth. Whether your company is already doing business in India or is contemplating entering that market for the first time, this leadership development program will help participants to focus their products or services around innovation-driven growth. As participants become familiar with a carefully designed set of methodologies and tools, they will be better prepared to tailor a coherent and consistent approach for innovating development processes, products and services, achieve strategic goals and gain corporate advantage,” David E. Bell, George M. Moffett Professor of Agriculture and Business at HBS and faculty member of Driving Growth Through Innovation—India.
As with all HBS Executive Education programs, the India portfolio will be taught by members of the School’s own full-time faculty using the HBS case method. Faculty lectures, discussions, and assessment tools will create a dynamic learning environment that emphasizes participation with a diverse group of peers. This will broaden a participant’s professional network through close interaction with an elite group of Indian and global peers who represent diverse industries and functions from research to product and service development.
