The Ivey Centre for Building Sustainable Value is convening leading organizations to 'innovate the innovation process'.
The Ivey Innovation Learning Lab is a new approach to learning that builds unique insights from leading academic thinking and peer-to-peer dialogue with fellow leaders. Participants come from business, government, and academia.
The Lab consortium knows that the way in which people live and work is being profoundly disrupted. The knowledge and tools of the past will not necessarily help navigate the future, nor solve the urgent and complex challenges facing society and business.
The 22 consortium members are sector leaders in innovation. They recognize the value of working with others to continuously improve their innovation process. Find out more in the video below.
More on the Ivey Innovation Learning Lab
Throughout 2019-2024, the consortium is convening quarterly in Toronto to tackle key parts of the innovation process.
The Lab deploys a cutting-edge approach to executive education, convening senior leaders and academics to co-create new insights on the frontier of knowledge. Each session is animated by a world-class thought leader followed by highly-interactive exchange – all informed by the latest research and Ivey’s ground-breaking work on innovation and disruption (see below).
The topics are chosen by the participating organizations. Anchored in design- and systems-thinking principles, topics to be covered in 2020-21 will include design processes, collaboration, mindsets and culture.
Ivey delivers the Lab in partnership with MaRS Discovery District, North America's largest urban innovation hub. Ivey Professor Tima Bansal leads the Lab in collaboration with Dr. Alex Ryan from MaRS.
The Lab provides a learning journey for the organizations represented in the consortium. Participants build critical innovation capabilities that mitigate the threats of disruption and shape their strategic and competitive context by:
- Learning from academics and businesses on the innovation frontier
- Building a network of executives across different sectors that can build new value chain possibilities and spark creativity
- Overcoming specific challenges with the help of other members
The Lab is also challenging, exciting and fun.
