The Strategic Innovator program 2017

 

 

DRIVE YOUR ORGANISATION INTO THE FUTURE

The world is evolving rapidly, and traditional business models, operating structures and financial processes need to evolve to keep up.

To help finance leaders at an executive level address the unique challenges faced in today’s economy, CPA Australia has created the Strategic Innovator Program.

By helping you to adopt a new mindset, this executive education program will enable you to implement new organisational processes, establish a culture of innovation and formulate business strategies for future growth.

 

PROGRAM OVERVIEW

Over this two-day program, alongside some of the finance profession’s most forward-thinking leaders, you’ll master the skills needed to become an Innovation Architect.

Day 1 – Leading innovation

You’ll learn to recognise and avoid the pitfalls of corporate innovation, as well as reframe problems before you embark on solutions. You’ll then work on formulating an innovation strategy for your department or business – avoiding the likely internal disconnects.

Day 2 – Innovation practices in the accounting and finance sector

Learn to establish a process for innovation using the business model canvas. Define good criteria for idea filtering and identify opportunities within your business. And become an innovation architect, understanding how to change people’s behaviour and motivate them to action.

Finally, learn to understand other important trends and apply theories in the innovation industry such as crowd sourcing open innovation, rapid prototyping, ethnographic studies, choice architecture, social engineering and human factors design.
