Ten (10) day Certified Innovation Manager Training Course
Innovations are important factors for strengthening the competitiveness of any enterprise. Product and service innovations oriented to new or existing markets, as well as the development and implementation of new production processes and organizational structures, are decisive factors in the marketplace.
In market-driven innovation processes, the company’s attention is focused on the newly discovered unfilled need of the potential customers. Today’s possibilities to access information worldwide have changed the role of the customer in the global marketplace. Market-driven innovation management requires a systematic approach that allows for understanding and developing solutions which effectively respond to the fulfillment of the customers’ needs.
Identifying this crucial issue, The Ceylon Chamber of Commerce in partnership with GIZ SME Development Programme and University of Leipzig, Germany is organizing a 10 day Certified Innovation Manager Training Course from 14th – 30th March, 2016.
The objective of the course is to make the participants familiar with the application of the different concepts and tools of innovation management in their organizations. The course is designed for managers and entrepreneurs in the private sector, as well as for business consultants. Participants are supposed to identify an innovation project during the training programme and the resource persons will provide individual coaching to participants for developing a short innovation idea description. The course is offered by the Small Enterprise Promotion and Training Program (SEPT) of Leipzig University and the specialized consultancy firm Conoscope GmbH, both from Germany. More details on the training course are given in the attached brochure.
This is the first time a comprehensive training programme on Innovation Management is conducted in Sri Lanka. It has been possible for the Chamber to organize this training programme due to the generous support of the GIZ SME Development Programme and the keen interest of University of Leipzig to extend their services to Sri Lankan private sector. The collaborators of the training programme will use the proceeds of the training programme to establish a fund to support a University – Business Linkage Programme to promote new technology and innovation among businesses in the underserved regions.
The participation is limited for 25 persons.
