The program unfolds over five days in an extended burst of creative intensity. The brainchild of the incomparable Moshe Rubinstein—who, in 2000, was named one of the Top 20 Professors of the Century at UCLA—this program immerses you in comprehensive insights, frameworks and tools on how to ignite innovation that drives results.
Guided by world class teachers from UCLA Anderson and experts from leading global corporations and consultancies, you will grapple with and master diverse approaches to creative ideation and how to shape your business culture and behaviors to encourage and channel a free flow of ideas. In a think-tank, workshop environment, you will work intensely with peers who represent leading organizations across the business spectrum.
While you learn, our team takes care of all the details over the five days so you can focus all your attention on the vital material being presented and how you are applying it.
You will take away insights and strategies to challenge existing mindsets and craft new ways of thinking. You will return to your organization with the skills to show your people at every level how to tap into their potential to innovate in ways that will contribute to the strength and performance of the business. Combining logic and structure with imagination and innovation, better decisions will ensue.
Ideation will become a core cultural strength of your organization. Resilience and agility will flourish. And your profile will grow as a change agent and catalyst for success.
