What you will learn

Gain contemporary skills and knowledge for your job now.

Large corporations and organisations increasingly expect employees to be innovative. They also expect them to understand the complexities of innovation and intrapreneurship within an existing business, and to be equipped to drive the idea through to application.

This course is ideal for professionals who aspire to improve their practice in innovation and intrapreneurship. It is co-designed with Telstra.

Sell your idea within a large organisation

Learn the importance of articulating how an innovation will be configured within the business – that is, by aligning with business results and creating benefits – in bringing on board all stakeholders. And how to construct a persuasive, fact-based narrative to propose a project with confidence.

Understand why innovation must be desirable, feasible, and viable

Learn that an innovation will not be successful unless it meets these three criteria: desirable – the key people who will drive its production and consumption must want it enough to be willing to change from what they are currently doing. Feasible – the organisation must be able to deliver it. Viable – the organisation must be able to deliver it cost-effectively.

Use self-reflection to manage risk and develop resilience

Learn about, and practice using, reflective learning to drive your personal growth. Develop behaviours and mindsets that are conducive to innovation, including managing personal and organisational risk and developing resilience.

Turn your own passion project into a pitch

Work on your own project throughout the course to build the necessary skills and social capital to be an intrapreneur immediately.

Who you will learn from

Learn from skilled academic and professional experts who will share invaluable knowledge you can use in your job.
