Business Innovation gives you the tools to develop change strategies and evaluate digital initiatives, build a culture of experimentationand increase your digital competence – all parameters that contribute to your organization’s digital capability. During the program, we will work on theories and models describing and explaining topics including the following: 

– Strategic models and the importance of a continuously updated strategy.
– Organizational change and culture as tools for development.
– Business development methods based on developing new products and services.
– How to define and create value and offerings for customers
– Technology as an enabler for companies and their stakeholders 

Business Innovation teaches you and your organization methods for digital transformation and for developing digital maturity. During the program, we will help you adopt an exploratory approach to change, which involves systematically trying new things and effectively learning from the results you achieve, both the positive and the negative. An organization’s digital maturity is developed by systematically, gradually and continuously assessing, selecting and implementing specific experiments in line with the company’s strategy. If successful, they can develop into full-scale projects – but experiments that don’t meet their goals still contribute to increasing the organization’s digital maturity. 


The program comprises a total of 9 full days divided across 3 modules each with 3 consecutive full days in residential session format. 

MODULE 1: Challenge – Definingstrategy and creating a fit between aspirations and initiatives based on insights from customers, technology and markets​.

Between each module you’ll actively work on a pre-defined business opportunity. The modules are structured so you can use new insights to transform this business opportunity into a specific project. 

In addition to lectures, workshops and case discussions, our IMPACT teaching method drives us to focus on key areas and challenges faced by the program participants.We will work togetherintensivelyon how theory and practice can help participants move their challenges closer to a solution.

Target group

Business Innovation is designed for those involved in change and development. Your challenges should preferably be of a strategic nature (in other words, changes that impact your organization’s offering, key processes or key stakeholders). For example, you could be a member of your organization’s management team and have ultimate responsibility – or you could be a project manager or line manager in a commercial organization or in a municipality or government agency.
