Innovation, Strategy, and Leadership for Japanese Managers
In order to succeed in today’s highly competitive global economy, organizations must be able to innovate—in their products, their processes, and their services. Innovators must be willing to take risks and outmaneuver competitors. They must abandon “me too” strategies and become leaders rather than followers. But many firms, especially large, established organizations, have difficulty moving away from “the way things have always been done,” distancing themselves from competitors, and trying new and different approaches to managing their business.

Innovation, Strategy, and Leadership for Japanese Managers introduces the latest strategic concepts, organization models, and approaches to product, process, and service innovation developed at the MIT Sloan School of Management. These concepts are designed to help managers compete more effectively in existing businesses as well as start new companies and explore new industries and business models. The program is designed to be of special interest to Japanese managers and entrepreneurs.

International Management Program
Designed and taught by leading faculty of the MIT Sloan School of Management, this intensive, four-week program goes beyond the MBA to consider the advanced concepts, practical tools, and essential skills needed to lead effectively in today's global business environment. The International Management Program integrates perspectives from multiple disciplines to enable managers to create, capture, and deliver value. The program introduces cutting-edge management thinking and provides frameworks and strategies for creating a global business strategy, driving innovation and entrepreneurship in established and emerging markets, managing the distributed enterprise, understanding international economics, and leading change in complex organizations.

The international nature of the program curriculum is reinforced by the diverse group of participants from a wide range of countries, as well as the multinational faculty.
