Beginner | Duration: 36:09 | Homework 00:15

Description

Despite increased efforts to improve diversity, inclusiveness lags behind in most companies. This situation creates barriers to generating diverse ideas and is stalling innovation. It has been proven repeatedly that diverse teams make better decisions and contribute to developing more successful commercial launches.

The lack of time, knowledge, or tools prevents innovation leaders from improving ideas by making the process more inclusive. A hybrid and remote work environment makes inviting all team members to brainstorming sessions and hackathons difficult.

Finally, language, cultural norms, or hierarchy may prevent some team members from expressing their ideas openly. This course equips you to inclusively crowdsource ideas in the digital age of hybrid work and turn them into potent business advancement and growth.

You will learn from real-world cases and innovation science, ensuring a holistic understanding of ideation's importance and methodologies.
