About the course

‘Doing Business Innovation’ is intrinsically multi-disciplinary by nature. However, while innovation teams often consist of T-shaped professionals, the pitfalls of siloed perspectives and practices are just around the corner, especially in large organisations. 

To effectively navigate the iterative process of an exploratory innovation project, you need to be versatile and able to cover many different angles - strategy, research, product & service management, marketing, communication, implementation, change processes, and more. Key aspects that help pulling all of this together are: mastering creativity, collaboration and customer-centricity. When the team understands and manages these aspects well, doing business innovation can feel like a breeze. Still challenging and ambitious, but at least not confused or disjointed.

By bringing together tools, principles and processes from innovation management, service design and design research, this course bridges the gap from user insights to developing concepts and implementing roadmaps. 

The course is delivered by two experienced tutors who have been teaching similar topics together for many years: Geke van Dijk (director of STBY) and Wietze van der Aa (former professor at University of Amsterdam Business School).
