Simply Said is the essential handbook for business communication.

Business Context

You are a manager who is increasingly responsible for the client experience. Your area’s leadership is looking to you to bring fresh ideas forward. At the same time, there’s organizational pressure to use established methods to deliver services efficiently. Since you know the process well, how do you effectively innovate to deliver better results for both your client and your firm?

Challenge & Solution

As a professional, you are always looking to improve. Firms are too. Now that you’ve demonstrated your technical skills, others expect you to lead and innovate. What if you had a set of tools to explore new ways of doing things? Opening yourself and your team to a new approach to solving problems can increase your impact as a manager and a leader.

Exec-Comm’s Innovative Thinking program helps you leverage recent research on successful innovators in business.
