CPD Program - Building Sustainable and Innovative Enterprises through Innovation Management System

My Offerings


In the face of increasingly fierce market competition due to the technological advancement in transportation and communications, each enterprise is keen to stay at a comparatively advantageous position in the market through either the product-driven approach or the market-driven approach.Whatever the approach the enterprise has been adopted in business, a buzz word of the era – innovation – has been taken as part of the key strategies and tactics to meet with customer expectation and make the value chain of service/products “unbreakable”.  However, what is innovation? How the innovative practices can bring the positive changes in efficiency, productivity, quality, competitiveness and market share to a firm? Is there any management system to lead an enterprise to respond to external or internal opportunities, and use its creativity to introduce new ideas, processes or products with the effort of workers at all levels for the product development, manufacturing and marketing?
