This mindset fosters continuous improvement and innovation. It stresses the importance of speed and accountability in decision-making while planning workable and alternative strategic scenarios. Leaders with an entrepreneurial mindset are able to more wholly embrace change while holding short- and long-term visions simultaneously.
At Eller Executive Education, we pride ourselves on having developed generations of entrepreneurs. Our entrepreneurship program is ranked #3 in the nation and our faculty has been working at extracting the core components of what makes entrepreneurs successful. We are now helping established organizations embed new ways to regenerate their strategy and kick start a dynamic new future.
Achieving Breakthroughs in Innovation
Most organizations struggle with creating a culture of innovation as well as managing the innovation process. Our faculty help teams reorganize for innovation by using new learning methodologies and new tools such as the Jim and Pam Muzzy Innovation Lab. Of course, we do not teach innovation in a vacuum: executives successfully reframe what it means to innovate within their organizational constraints and learn how to lead culture change that fosters innovation.
Building Organizational Agility
Likewise, most organizations strugge to compete for the future and are normally bogged down by established business practices and current but waning successes. Eller Executive Education helps participants develop what we call “business ambidexterity”: the ability to manage the successes of the present while building the organization of the future. We do so by employing a variety of learning tools and methodologies, including hackathons, future casting scenarios, and learning labs.
