Session Summary 

Why do we need to innovate? What happens if we don’t?

Businesses are getting disrupted at a faster rate and we are seeing competition coming from different industries. Look at Grab and Airbnb and how these companies are changing the competitive landscape of traditional transportation and accommodation businesses.

More than ever, it is essential to think creatively and out-of-the-box. When discussing innovations, it’s more than technology or design innovations that sets businesses apart.

This workshop serves as an introduction to innovation breakthroughs and innovation management. It is based on the framework of the Global Innovation Management Institute (GIMI), a non-profit organisation and global standard certification board for innovation and innovation management headquartered in Boston, MA, USA. Over 200 Fortune 500 companies and over 10,000 MBA students worldwide have developed mastery of innovation through the structured frameworks and processes of GIMI. Info on GIMI:
