Leading Radical Innovation in Teams
The MIT Professional Education program for Leading Radical Innovation in Teams is uniquely designed to deliver a powerful learning experience. It builds on the premises that effective leadership and teamwork are central to achieving major innovations. For our program, we aim to enroll experienced executives and managers who are prepared to commit to an intensive and collaborative learning experience. Those who become part of the program will engage in a uniquely MIT experience – one that is intellectually demanding, impact-oriented, and that aspires to contributing to a better world. Our program will utilize multiple learning methods, including case studies, role-plays, and other forms of experiential learning.
- Understand how to identify and evaluate new radical innovation opportunities.
- Identify and gain the commitment of the stakeholders that are critical to successful innovation.

- Implement bold changes through a balance of “soft and hard” influence strategies.
- Harness the energy of constructive conflict in innovation teams.
