Overview

Discover how to stay ahead of the competition

Innovation is crucial to the continuing success of your organization. It’s rocket fuel that powers the creation of new products, new services, new ways of running your business, or even new ways of doing business.

During this hands-on course created especially for business leaders, you will learn all you need to know about understanding users, discovering insights and generating new ideas that will help you successfully guide your teams and stay ahead of the competition.

Our methodology

Hyper Island Way

Hyper Island methodology is based on a learner-centered, experience-based approach. We facilitate learning journeys, where discovering, uncovering, applying and reflecting is all part of the process by which participants learn useful skills and knowledge they can apply right away.

Learn by doing

Build, create, experiment! We know from more than 20 years of experience that people learn best through active doing and making.

Work in teams

Collaboration is the modern core competence in a world of complexity and constant change.

Real-world ready

We build learning around actual examples and practical tasks to make it all immediately relevant and useful.

Global network of experts

We work with world-leading industry experts to provide the most cutting-edge content.

Innovation is where creativity meets commercial reality. Leadership is the ability to inspire the best in yourself and others. In this Hyper Island short course, we combine the two and transfer a unique set of tools to help you to become the authentic leader that lies within, and to unlock the potential for innovation within your team and self. Life and business will never be quite the same again.
