NICF- Strategic Design & Innovation

Overview

Organisational Innovation is the key to driving higher value, productivity and continued living standards in the economy.

Increasingly most design and innovation initiatives incorporate a technology element and so it’s critical that managers and leaders from across the organisation know how to structure and deliver these projects.

This course will provide organisational leaders and senior managers the framework necessary for strategic management of design and innovation within their organisation. The course will impress upon participants the power of strategic human centred design thinking to innovate and will also discuss the adoption of this in addressing systemic issues in fields such as healthcare, education etc.

Over 2 days, this course will provide attendees with an understanding of how to use a range of tools and techniques aiding the design, delivery, and governance of Digital innovation and design strategies.

This course is part of the Digital Innovation & Design series offered by NUS-ISS.
