Most descriptions of innovation, entrepreneurship, and leadership focus only on externalities –tasks that must be performed and functions that must be fulfilled. This intensive will shed light on less obvious human aspects of proficiency.
Innovative Thinking Deconstructed is built around mini-lectures, exercises, demonstrations, and case examples. In particular, it leverages the rich history of leaders, maverick entrepreneurs, designers, movie producers, and jazz musicians who provide a set of rich illustrations with which to deconstruct and re-examine innovative thinking. Simply put, innovative thinking leads to “good” results defined by their value.
This begs the question: What characterizes effective, innovative thinking?
Intensive instructor John Kao is a Visiting Fellow at the School of Engineering and Applied Sciences, Yale Ventures entrepreneur in residence, and Trumbull College Fellow. His eclectic experience as a producer, musician, innovation maven, and former Harvard Business School professor is reflected in the intensive design.
