Tangent at Trinity – Masterclass in Managing Innovation: Driving and supporting the innovation effort



Essential to the success of an innovation strategy are the processes and systems that support, resource and implement it. Innovation leadership is underpinned by market insight and ensuring new ideas correspond with real needs. Innovation leaders skillfully navigate risk, managing it rather than eliminating it. Innovation leadership is driven through adoption and delegation, clearly establishing ownership of the cascading initiatives that emanate from an organisation’s innovation strategy.

Ultimately, innovation leadership is a set of management practices which establish innovation as a key delivery agent of the strategic goals of any organisation.
