Program Content

The Shift of the Paradigm: Towards a Customer-focused Strategy


Discover the benefits of a customer-centric approach.

Globalization, digitalization, and the growth of platforms have led to the emergence of new types of consumers: ones who are much more demanding and constantly looking for the highest value. In such market conditions, a “one-size-fits-all” approach is not the best strategic choice. Instead, to make your business flourish, you need to put your customer first, at the core of your business.

The Innovation Flow: A Structured Process to Creativity


Master innovation using a structured approach.

To identify opportunities for creating the highest value for your customers and to remain competitive as a company, you need to think differently. This requires creative leadership: an explorative mindset along with the drive to envision new ideas and solutions.


To make the most of your organization’s innovation power, you also need tried and tested tools to shape, structure, and optimize innovation within your company. Successful innovation calls for a structured approach.

Responsible Consumption: Applying the Innovation Flow In Context


Use your innovative power to empower sustainable lifestyles and improve well-being.

Customers have become much more selective in terms of which businesses they choose to spend their money on. They not only expect customized products and services, but they also take into account the environmental consequences of their consumption and act more ethically. It is, therefore, in your business’ interest to design solutions that meet responsible consumption patterns. To make disruptive changes, you need to think big, seek inspiration broadly, and develop surprising ideas.

Customer-focused Strategy: Translation to Day-to-day Work


Find out how to translate your program learnings into your day-to-day work.

Coming up with a groundbreaking idea is not enough. You must also cultivate a creative organizational culture if you want to increase innovation output in your teams and make a real difference in your value proposition. You must find out how to remove the obstacles of implementing a customer-focused strategy, as well as how to optimize the management of innovation processes as a daily business routine.
