Business thinking versus Innovative thinking
What Leaders Need Now Is Innovation Leadership!!!
They need it for themselves as they learn to operate in challenging, unpredictable circumstances. They also need to create a climate for innovation within organizations. Innovative systems, tools, and thinking are essential for organizational health and future viability. We can’t give leaders a new crystal ball.
They need it for themselves as they learn to operate in challenging, unpredictable circumstances. They also need to create a climate for innovation within organizations. In that sense, many question the validity of MBA (Master in Business of administration) versus MBI (Master in Business of Innovation).
The MBA content and format evolved to address economical and industrial needs but it still remains focused on the core traditional business fields such as accounting, finance, marketing, human resources and operations.
The MBI is focused on the current strategic/competitive needs of modern organizations.
It also covers the core business areas, but it integrates them in a more pragmatic and transversal manner.
For example, within the innovation projects feasibility learning, the different aspects of product or service viability, risk and sustainability are addressed, taking into consideration strategic, economical, technological, legal and operational aspects.
