Mentors and Influencer

The inspiration for the training concept came from the founder Oliver Bludau during his academic work at the Harvard Business School. Prof. Michael L. Tushman and Prof. Gary P. Pisano have made a significant contribution to the development that also enables Innovators Institute customers to participate in the innovation capabilities of one of the best business schools in the world.

Now more than ever before, companies must innovate and ambidextrously exploit existing strategy while exploring new possibilities. My best wishes to everyone at the Innovators Institute in their effort to leave a footprint in the world of idea management and crowd innovation.
