Given the incredible pace of change disrupting industries today, no company can survive by its sole reliance on a few individual leaders at the top trying to assess, and respond, to these disrupters. EVERY employee must take up this mantle in his, or her, respective job, function, business unit, market and/or geography. But to upskill an entire organization to think this way in real time can seem overwhelming. This is precisely why these two edX courses created and taught by one of the world's most capable strategists is so timely, and so critical to a company's long term success. Any employee who wants to think, and act like a leader... one who can hypothesize what the future holds and act accordingly would benefit from completing these two courses on innovation. The simplicity, and power of application of VG's Box 3 thinking simply cannot be overstated. Hasbro leaders have found Three Box Solution practical and impactful.

At Prudential, Vijay Govindarajan has helped shape our thinking on the theory and practice of innovation. The rate of change will only accelerate in the future. Innovation is therefore going to be even more important. Whether you are a manager in the marketing function or in human resources or in finance, you must acquire capabilities to spot unmet customer problems, conceive new business models, test critical assumptions, come up with appropriate scorecard, and build the talent and the team to convert ideas into impact. Earning a Professional Certificate in Vijay's Developing Breakthrough Innovations and Executing Breakthrough Innovations will help you develop these critical capabilities.
