CEOs need to spend 20-40% of their time on innovation. Otherwise, they'll unlikely make innovation repeatedly happen inside their organizations, according to Rita McGrath (author and Professor at Columbia Business School.) So what should CEOs be doing during this time?

While they don't need to be the ones picking ideas, they do need to be creating an environment where great ideas emerge and are implemented. We'll explore this role with Alex and Strategyzer Partner Tendayi Viki, author of Pirates in the Navy.

In this webinar, you will discover how CEOs can create a culture of innovation, develop a strategy for innovation and lead their teams to implement innovation initiatives successfully. We'll also uncover how others in the organization can support their efforts.

You'll also gain insights into CEOs' common challenges regarding innovation and learn best practices for overcoming them.

As usual, we'll have fun sorting innovation practices into "hot or not" categories and reviewing examples of companies getting innovation right.

Expect this to be a fast-paced, interactive session.

If you're a business leader, corporate innovator, or innovation coach, don't miss this opportunity to learn from Strategyzer's experts and take your organization's innovation to the next level.
