Course description

Creating a Culture for Innovation

In this course, participants will systematically explore the relationship of innovation (doing things in different ways) and project management (establishing and following standards to accomplish a goal). In this context, “innovation” represents a strategy that can add value to project deliverables, more easily satisfy the customer’s need, and increase the capabilities of the performing organization. Innovation, whether technology-based or process-based, is best defined as discovering a different way to address a problem or use a technology to enhance an existing solution.Effective project management techniques also benefit both the customer by meeting their need and the performing organization either through financial return or supporting their Strategic Objectives.Combining project management discipline with innovative insights can supply dramatic results to project outcomes.

During this one-day course using lecture, discussion, and case studies, participants will examine innovation following the following agenda:
