50% of all innovation efforts fail to realize the expected value because the innovation doesn’t address the real problem or execution fails. The technical leader, who leads many of the innovation efforts in organizations, needs a solid, customer-centered approach to initiating, developing, and deploying innovative solutions. Learners will engage in a customer-centered design process from framing to implementation and practice discovering, framing, and driving successful innovation efforts that create sustainable value.
