The notion of innovation has been around for quite some time and is a foundational element in all technology and product development companies. It is closely tied to entrepreneurship and there are many innovation models, tools, and theories.

This WebCast will offer a different look at innovation that includes service innovation, and experience and emotion as components of the process of innovation.

In this discussion, you’ll learn to:

  • Define the elements of service innovation
  • Understand the role of consumer experience and emotion in innovation
  • Offer a process of opportunity through innovation

Business schools around the globe teach students the benefits of strategic or managerial decision making as a business development tool. Strategic decision making begins with clearly defined goals and objectives that help create strategies and determine tactics.

On the other hand, entrepreneurs evaluate the strategic resources, capabilities, and unfair advantages within the entrepreneur’s control and then select opportunities that these capabilities make them uniquely able to pursue. It is this unique methodology, and it is this unique mindset, that create the foundation for entrepreneurial thinking.

This discussion will help you understand:

  • The difference between managerial and entrepreneurial thinking
  • The process employed by successful entrepreneurs
  • How entrepreneurs behave in the face of non-existent or not-yet-existing markets
  • How to employ entrepreneurial thinking and increase your odds for success

Without risk, there is no opportunity. Successful managers continually evaluate and revise their strategies to effectively balance risk with opportunity. In this webinar, you will examine the relationships between risk, uncertainty and opportunity. Common approaches to dealing with risk and uncertainty will be presented, and suggestions on how to identify and leverage the opportunities created by risk and uncertainty will be discussed.
