Room 118/119.
Alan Mumby, Innovation Management Lecturer, UWTSD

When asked the question “how important is innovation to the company,” most business leaders would answer immediately, “very!”

The business world recognises that innovation and how we manage it are essential across the entire company. Irrespective of profession or role, we can all play a meaningful part in its delivery. In this session, we’ll cover the incredible impact that innovation management can have on a business and how ideas can be transformed into something of value not only to the company but also to its customers.

Alan will be focusing on the necessities that are likely to make this happen. This will be supported by contributions from recent graduates of the International Innovation Management MSc course.
