OUR PHILOSOPHY

Innovation is less about novelty and more about impact. The key to our innovation philosophy is to find solutions that have profound impact with limited resource. We call these model high leverage solutions. Our faculty has developed a framework for innovation called Innovation for Growth (I4G).

THE I4G MODEL

The Challenge of Innovation does not lie in the creation of new products or services, but in the creation of human systems able to innovative s and to adapt to new conditions in both an emergent and deliberate fashion. The i4g model strives more for the development of new relationships than for the development of new objects.
