Out-Innovate the Competition

Course code: PD271714

Well-intentioned leaders, in their attempts to boost innovation, are inadvertently destroying it. Based on Stephen Shapiro’s bestselling book, Best Practices are Stupid: Ways to Out-Innovate the Competition, this online learning experience offers counterintuitive yet proven strategies for boosting innovation and making it a repeatable, sustainable, and profitable process. He teaches that innovation isn’t just about generating occasional new ideas; it’s about staying consistently one step ahead of the competition. Shapiro shows that non-stop innovation is attainable and vital to building high-performing teams, improving financial outcomes, and staying competitive with peer organizations.  Using self-assessment, the goal is to challenge you to think differently about how you approach innovation.
