Innovation is a core business process focused on renewing what an organisation offers (its products and/or its services) and the ways in which it generates and delivers them.   Whether your business is involved with bricks, bread, banking or baby care, the underlying challenge is still the same.

Businesses are invited to discover how innovation can provide them with a competitive advantage to help them survive and grow through a series of webinars.
