An Interactive 5-Day Training Course

Innovation for Results

Course Introduction

This Oxford Management Centre Innovation for Results training course is designed to provide leaders and mangers with the skills and insights they need to create a results-focused innovation culture for their teams, for their business units or for the entire organisation. In the 21st century, the ability to innovate is not merely a ‘nice to have’, but an essential prerequisite for remaining relevant and competitive. Yet around half of all innovation efforts fail to add genuine value to the organisation, and the main cause usually lies with two underlying issues: either the innovation effort isn’t aligned with the goals and objectives of the business, or the execution fails to deliver against the required standards.

In this intense 5-day training course, leaders and managers will discover tools, techniques and approaches that will help them harness the immense power of creativity and innovativeness. They will learn how to drive powerful, game-changing solutions to business challenges, foster a culture of agility and problem-solving, and unlock the vast potential for creativity and innovation that resides within their employee base.

This Innovation for Results training course will highlight:

  • What innovation and creativity really is – and why it is essential to remain relevant
  • How to drive breakthrough-innovations for business results
  • The innovation roadmap - from ideation to application
  • Methods for unlocking the creative power that lies within your organisation
  • How to tap into your own ‘Innovator’s DNA’


At the end of this Innovation for Results training course, you will have learned how to:

  • Generate the conditions that unlock your people’s creativity
  • Apply leadership behaviours that lead to game-changing innovation
  • Discover approaches for generating ideation and blue-sky thinking
  • Learn problem-solving and decision-making techniques
  • Drive a customer-centric approach to innovation
