CHRISTENSEN INSTITUTE FOR DISRUPTIVE INNOVATION
We have partnered with Clayton Christensen to explore how global market shifts and rapidly advancing technologies are disrupting industries. Disruption across the supply chain brings an incredible opportunity to open emerging markets, spur growth in developing nations and provide essential goods to a greater portion of the world’s population.
LEADING SELF – LEADING OTHERS
Our two-day leadership development program has been evolving since 2015. Participants go through various simulation exercises and are given tasks to help them better understand their own, and other people’s, leadership styles and attributes so they can improve how they communicate and engage with their teams, as well as give and receive feedback.
We have a customized curriculum to equip our people with the skills needed to incorporate data science and machine learning into the way they work and how they create value for their customers. The 11-week program is project-based so participants learn by doing and can create immediate impact for their business.
Through Design Thinking workshops, our ‘Innovation Catalyst’ team helps the businesses learn how to bring customer needs into the problem-solving process, identify innovation opportunities, ideate and rapid prototype new ideas. Recently, the IC team spent a week in New York with Global Brands Group to understand the next generation of shoppers (Gen Z) and what the future of retail might look like for them.
