Strategic Planning Process

How to Achieve Breakthrough Innovations

Course Overview
Many established companies are not prepared to deal with breakthrough innovation. They are subdivided into discrete structures and business units that tend to favor the aggressive pursuit of operational excellence and incremental innovation at the expense of disruptive innovation. In this segment, Marc Epstein, author, advisor and professor, shows how companies can benefit from both incremental and breakthrough innovation by blending the philosophy of successful startups with the experience, access to resources and network of an established company.

Learning Objectives:

Upon successful completion of this segment, you should be able to:

  • Recognize why larger companies are failing to achieve breakthrough innovations;
  • Identify the characteristics of a model to achieve breakthrough innovations;
  • Identify the elements of the innovation paradox;
  • Recognize the benefits of melding the "Startup Corporation" with large company resources.
