Managing Teams for Innovation and Success
Bring effective team management and innovation to your company with actionable strategies, experiential team-based simulations, and design thinking.
Managing Teams for Innovation and Success takes a strategic, global approach to every aspect of teams: creating, managing, and leading them. Great teams can stimulate creativity and innovation, make an organization more adaptive to market forces, and drive breakthrough results.
Building and developing successful teams is a complex process. Managing Teams for Innovation and Success provides strategies, skills, and hands-on simulations to challenge your assumptions and transform your teams.
In six highly intensive and experiential days, you will work with Stanford GSB faculty to explore evidence-based research and discover the counterintuitive findings of team building. You will learn how to leverage diversity, stimulate engagement, influence others without authority, harness collective intelligence, and implement change. You will use design thinking principles to foster team innovation.
