Class Description


What you'll learn in this management course:

Develop and promote a disruptive mindset to achieve new and sustainable growth

Who Should Attend:

Senior managers in all industries who are responsible for choosing and implementing an organizational and divisional strategy that will produce optimal results.

Breakthrough growth isn’t about luck. It requires that everyone in the organization change their mindset from what is to what if and create a disruption. Disruption equips us with the ability to withstand external threats, like competition, technology, government regulations, demographic shifts, economic uncertainty, and other influences.

As a leader of disruptive innovation, you will help your business capitalize on new opportunities and safeguard it against stagnation and obsolescence. In this program for experienced leaders, you’ll identify and develop pivotal skills for being a visionary leader who is able to get ahead of the curve, prime others in your organization to welcome disruption, and do away with the common organizational resistance that often prevents companies from embracing the unexpected.

How you will benefit:

  • Develop and apply a curious, “what if” mindset—the ability to think “futuristically”
  • Be ready to embrace and implement rapid changes
  • Identify and respond to both threats and opportunities for disruption
  • Understand and assess disruption from the point of view of those being disrupted
  • Develop inner courage and willingness to face disruption
  • Acquire strategies to overcome organizational stagnation
  • Enable a consistent flow of ideas into the innovation pipeline
  • Lead your organization to positive change

What you will cover:

  • Building a shared understanding of what is meant by “disruption”
  • Creating your “Ripe for Disruption” checklist
  • Developing the “disruptive mindset”: create, engage, adapt
  • Learning and building the skills for disruptive leadership
  • Discovering how to design disruption
  • Scanning the environment for trends, opportunities, and threats
  • Identifying technologies and other factors that have potential to cause disruption
  • Deepening your understanding of companies that are more likely to be disrupted
  • Characterizing the market landscape for your industry
  • Applying tools for identifying and building agile responses
  • Experiencing “disruption wars” through an interactive simulation
  • Developing leadership courage in yourself and others
  • Building an effective disruptive innovation action plan for your organization
