Business Strategy and Innovation

Business Strategy and Innovation

Business strategy & Innovation is about creating unique value for consumers by delivering a great product that satisfies their needs.
In order to move forward and build a compelling strategy, we need to better understand the bigger picture and the systems that shape how organizations work, perform and move towards profitability. Why some established companies do not respond to internal and external transformation pressures by embracing new technologies and business opportunities has puzzled innovation researchers for some time. One common explanation is that industry incumbents can become locked in to, for example, their existing resources, assets and capabilities. In an interdependent world, fostering an integrated ecosystem is critically important for companies interested in maximizing the odds of innovation success. In this way, by better understanding business strategy, organisation can move towards innovation and create value.By participating in this course, you will be able to:
