Successful innovation and transformation

Studies show that as much as 70 percent of innovation projects fail among organizations in the non-profit sector. Even though innovation is critical to the creation of lasting public value. In practice however, it rarely amounts to true change. Why is it that innovation faces such strong headwinds in the public sector? And what does it take to ensure successful technological and societal transformations? Following the latest scientific insights, this master class takes a deep dive into the forms of resistance to fundamental change. So you can forge ahead with your own successful innovations and transformations. To add real value for society.

Looking for a study program that will help you create an impact on business and society? I’ll be happy to help you find the program or course of study that best suits your ambitions, learning goals and career path.

PROGRAM DESIGN AND CONTENTS

PROGRAM DESIGN

It is often difficult to implement fundamental change in organizations in the non-profit sector. Resistance is strong, while support is weak. The Innovation & Transformation Master Class first examines the causes of resistance, so you understand why innovations often fail. Next, it gives you the tools you need to ensure successful innovation. Much of the program is case-based: you gain new knowledge by working through real-world situations. And working on your own innovation challenge.

PROGRAM CONTENTS

DAY 1

Day 1 provides insights into societal transformations. You discover why many public sector innovation projects fail, and learn how to use innovation to create value for society.

DAY 2

Day 2 is about cutting red tape in the public sector. Rules and mindsets are often so ingrained in our day-to-day work that they pose an obstacle to innovation. Learn what is needed in order to cut red tape.

DAY 3

On the third day, you learn how to spark an actual societal transformation. You discover how to change deep-seated rules, structures and social norms in a non-profit organization.

TIME INVESTMENT

The Innovation & Transformation Master Class takes place over 3 consecutive days.

The program is designed to limit the amount of preparation time. Participants should plan for a total of 6 hours of preparation time.

“The Innovation & Transformation Master Class provides you with deeps insights into resistance to innovation projects. And of course how to dispel this resistance. We use a practical approach, working with the participants’ own innovation challenges and special scenarios developed for this master class, based on the Harvard case method. By learning the practical side of innovation from the inside out, participants truly internalize their understanding. The result: a completely different way of thinking, so they can get started on fundamental change in their own organizations.”
