Leaders are tasked with executing their organization’s vision and mission. To do this, they need to motivate their teams, optimize their processes and implement change.

Innovation is not just about developing new products and services, it’s also about continuously improving existing processes and generating ideas to help overcome challenges and move initiatives forward.
