“The characteristic of great innovators and great companies is they see a space that others do not. They don't just listen to what people tell them; they actually invent something new, something that you didn't know you needed, but the moment you see it, you say, 'I must have it.’” -Google CEO Eric Schmidt

Global research shows us that there are 10 skills that an innovation manager needs to master to be at the top of their game. This goes beyond the mere stating of the obvious and requires a total understanding of innovation components as well tangible and intangible mental considerations. Whether your organisation is involved in evolutionary, or revolutionary innovation, you must contend with a bewildering set of incomplete and often contradictory sensory inputs. This programme provides you with the 10 skills that will provide a reliable and solid platform on which to hold and position your fragile and changing idea framework. Remember, innovation takes place on many levels. The big breakthroughs usually get the attention. But if we want NZ to maintain its competitive edge in the long run, we need to encourage, support and celebrate innovation on a smaller scale as well.
