Master Class: How to Balance Sustaining & Strategic Innovation

An ambidextrous company is one that balances the natural tension between what innovation researchers have labeled exploitation (running a business efficiently) and exploration (finding new businesses) behaviors. This tension results in a “dance” between business units and those in the company who are charged with long-term exploration. The dance can either be ad-hoc and clumsy, or choreographed and powerful.

Join us on April 18 from 2:00 – 3:00 p.m. ET for a Master Class with Larry Schmitt and Steve Schwartz from The Inovo Group to learn how to master this dance. During the webcast, they will explain how corporate innovation groups can balance their efficiency-based projects and exploration activities. You’ll learn how to build a comprehensive innovation system that supports the successful creation of both sustaining and strategic innovations. The Master Class will also cover the different types of opportunities that emerge along the sustaining–strategic continuum.

This Master Class is open to members and non-members of the Innovation Leader community.
