The Innovative Technology Leader

The Innovative Technology Leader

Explore the intersection of innovation, technology, and business, and learn to drive strategic change across your organization.

Strategy. Innovation. Leadership. Today’s technology leaders need skills in all three areas. With change as a constant, the key to success is learning how to keep pace on a global scale, to innovate, and to nurture and develop value-creating ideas across your organization.

In six intense days, you’ll work with Stanford GSB faculty and peers from around the globe to learn how to anticipate and respond to the complex and rapidly changing issues in the world of information technology. Experience hands-on design thinking sessions at the Hasso Plattner Institute of Design, also called the d.school.

Uncover the subtle and often-unseen dynamics underlying technology trends. Learn how to recognize the key drivers of innovation and understand the critical role of effective leadership.

Tailored to the complex and changing role of the technology leader, this unique program combines classroom learning, Silicon Valley speakers, and hands-on design thinking sessions to teach strategy, innovation, and leadership.
