This is part of the Institute for Management Studies (IMS) Leadership Conversations.
These 60-minute IMS live virtual programs provide a quick dive into key topics that are critical to organizations during a time of disruptive change. Packed with actionable learning strategies, participants will experience an interactive virtual program with an IMS thought leader and receive post-session support through micro-learning lessons and a discussion board.
During this one-hour event, Dr. Govindarajan will offer an amazingly simple and highly effective three box solution framework for leading innovation, which deals with the problem of innovation faced by many organizations; how do you re-invent, while still meeting the performance requirements of the current business.
- Execute the present core business at peak efficiency (box 1)
- Avoid the inhibiting traps of past success (box 2)
- Build a future day by day through breakthrough innovations (box 3)
Facilitator: Dr. Vijay Govindarajan
Vijay Govindarajan, known as VG, is widely regarded as one of the world’s leading experts on strategy and innovation. VG was the first Professor in Residence and Chief Innovation Consultant at General Electric. He worked with GE’s CEO Jeff Immelt to write “How GE is Disrupting Itself”, the Harvard Business Review (HBR) article that pioneered the concept of reverse innovation-any innovation that is adopted first in the developing world. HBR picked reverse innovation as one of the Great Moments in Management in the Last Century. In the latest Thinkers50 Rankings, he was ranked the #1 Indian Management Thinker.
He is also a NYT and WSJ Best Selling author, is the Coxe Distinguished Professor at Dartmouth College’s Tuck School of Business and the Marvin Bower Fellow at Harvard Business School.
