As a manager, you understand innovation
and you’re prepared to take the risk.
An idea is just the beginning
Innovation is intrinsic to building Canadian businesses, but achieving success involves more than just having a great idea — research and development, financing, recruiting talent, scaling operations and, most important, managing all those processes are vital, interconnected components to progress, profit and prosperity.
Putting all those elements into place can be a big task for even the most seasoned manager. Whether your role is C-suite, R&D, finance or running a project day-to-day it’s important your focus is on both the destination and the journey.
Canada ranked #1 in the world in # of innovative firms in a 2019 survey by OECD (Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development).
