Description

ICSB is proud to announce a new global initiative to fulfill our mission of continuing management education with the goal to promote entrepreneurship. Our program is called ICSB Global and it constitutes state-of- the-art certificate programs. We are proud to announce the launch of the ICSB Global Certificate Program on Creativity and Innovation.

Years ago, creativity and innovation were mainly associated with art, entertainment or recreation, and only in very particular cases, it was related to the world of organizations. However, this has changed. Currently, innovation and in particular, creativity, is considered fundamental in different areas. This can be seen in a report about the future of work published by the World Economic Forum in 2016, where creativity is among the three most important skills required for 2020. This presents a serious demand that organizations have to be innovative for their own competitiveness in a global context. Furthermore, they have to create new products and services to stay relevant. Innovation is decisive with respect to the levels of competitiveness in companies, sectors and also in the economy of the countries. In today’s business, executives and organizations must carry forward a professional innovation management in their particular context. In other words, each organization or entrepreneur must model their businesses in a unique combination that allows them to detect opportunities for innovation and successful execution capabilities.

Each ICSB Global certificate requires you complete three (3) mandatory modules followed by two (2) elective modules from the many provided. The ICSB Global certificate offers an invaluable experience of being able to interact with participants from across the globe and from a variety of backgrounds, experiences, and knowledge. ICSB brings over 60 years of knowledge to this certificate program.

Module One: Think as an artist: Creativity for the Design of effective products and service
The objective of this module is to present an actionable approach to the design of “beautiful” products and services. Why beauty? Because recent and breakthrough findings in Cognitive science about how the mind perceives complexity to show that the pursuit of beauty is the way our brain understand the world and make decisions opting for the most elegant solution. In this module, we will use visual art and neuroscience to show how artists achieve elegance and translate this into a set of eight strategies that can be used to improve design and enhance creativity.

Contents

  • Entrepreneur as an artist: Innovation as delivery of new meaning through the design of effective artifacts
  • What makes a design beautiful? Lessons from Designers, Cognitive Science and Complexity Theory
  • Think as an artist: 8 strategies to achieve elegance and simplicity in Design

Module Two: Creativity and Design thinking: how to design effective Organizations
A visual, design thinking approach is applied in this module to the design of effective organizations as well. A new venture is an organization formed to search for a repeatable and scalable business model (Ries, 2013). Using visual tools to design and simulate business models, in this workshop participants will learn how visual thinking and simplicity can help in the design of lean as well as effective ventures:

Contents

  • What is Business models (building blocks)
  • Visualize your business model: Lean canvas/Business model canvas
  • Cases studies of effective business model design and BM driven innovation

Module Three: Where do good ideas come from?
This online module will present a review of the most well-known theories about sources of innovation: where do good ideas come from? Can innovation be designed? Which are the characteristics of highly innovative systems and how can we replicate them and apply to our business idea? Theories will be presented through successful cases and examples from the real world based on 4 types of innovation sources:

Contents

  • Innovation from marginal markets: Disruptive innovation
  • Innovation from Industry: the dynamic of innovation in Industry
  • Innovation from Smart collectives: Information Economy and Peer-production, innovation in online communities (open sources, makers), Open Innovation
  • Innovation from tradition, history, culture, and territory

The 10x10 Program promotes the facilitation of trade between other countries’ small businesses and the small businesses of the United States. This opportunity is made possible through the Small Business Act and the U.S. Small Business Administration’s Strategic Plan.

One of the overarching objectives for the 10x10 Program will be to emulate and articulate the mission of the U.S. Small Business Administration which is to aid, counsel, assist and protect the interests of small business concerns, to preserve free competitive enterprise and to maintain and strengthen the overall economy of the United States.
The framework for the ICSB small business best practice guidelines will be the following three primary pillars.

Module 1. Contracting (Procurement)
In the United States, the Office of Government Contracting sets goals with other federal departments and agencies to reach the statutory goal of 23 percent in prime contract dollars to small businesses. This office also provides small businesses with subcontracting procurement opportunities, outreach programs, and training.

Module 2. Capital (Business Financing)
Not every small business has the same needs for capital injection. We will design and develop a vast array of financing options for small businesses from the smallest needs in micro-lending – to substantial debt and equity investment capital (venture capital).

Module 3. Counseling – Entrepreneurial Development (Education, Training & Technical Assistance)
In order to build and demonstrate a comprehensive public/private networks for training and education, we will use the existing SBA’s model.
