We are pleased to have Terry Farmer and Xavier Butte help us learn to lead innovation.
Leaders are now recognizing the need for new approaches to solve the most challenging and costly organizational problems. So, what role does leadership play in the innovation process? The short answer: a big role.
The need for continuous and sustained innovation has never been greater for organizations, regardless of size, industry, market, or profit vs. non-profit status. As markets continue to grow more global, open, and competitive, and customer expectations become more diverse and demanding, innovation is everyone's business.
