“Innovation in Marketing”
“Innovation in Marketing” has seen significant interest in recent years. Chartered Institute of Marketing (CIM) has decided that so critical is the topic of Innovation to marketing and business success that a compulsory module on their Diploma in Marketing was created. This seminar aims to introduce concepts of innovation in marketing to an audience that may not be familiar with the discipline and illustrate through real-world case studies the innovation activities that are already in common usage. The study utilizes a range of contemporary theories and case studies to demonstrate how theory is being applied to modern business, in a variety of sectors. This include full process of innovation, from idea generation, change management, creating a creative environment, approach to innovation and implementation of innovation products and services.
