Leading and Sponsoring Innovation  | September 2024

Leading and Sponsoring Innovation is an online-delivered, new microcourse from iFHP to teach leaders how to effectively foster a culture of innovation in their organisations, and guide idea development.

The material for this course is designed specifically for leaders in the insurance industry. The tutors are industry experts, bringing both an understanding of the challenges to fostering innovation in the industry, and a keen sense of the opportunities, if innovation is fostered well.

Classes are restricted to 10 people. The course takes place online, over two sessions, spaced one week apart.

The first session, “A Manifesto for Leading Innovation,” will focus on the value that a design thinking approach brings to the health insurance business, the key leadership mindsets for innovation culture and how they’re adopted. The second, “Sponsoring Early-Stage Innovation,” provides tools to identify and assess the value of innovation opportunities. We’ll bring the tools and techniques we’ve developed for the insurance industry, and share our stories of how we’ve implemented them in our work on the ‘what’ and the ‘how’ of effective innovation. By the end of the course, you will be able to:

● Define business innovation, its significance, and how it should be communicated and structured for success

● Apply essential leadership mindsets for fostering innovation culture, alongside a leadership charter that promotes and sustains it

● Utilise a problem-focused approach to tackle strategic challenges, enhancing the effectiveness of innovation endeavours

● Evaluate and prioritize early-stage innovation ideas, creating a well-balanced innovation portfolio that aligns with goals and maximizes value

Classes are highly interactive, with plenty of opportunity to collaborate, network, and reflect on how you’ll take the frameworks forward within your area. Come ready to roll up your sleeves and get stuck in. We look forward to welcoming you to the programme.
