About Innovation Drivers and the Innovation Driver Certification Programme

Today’s organizations are increasingly focused on innovation and entrepreneurship for the purpose of their growth and renewal. To this end, large numbers of employees are being trained in the application of numerous tools and techniques for the execution of innovation projects and for the stimulation of entrepreneurial behaviour. At the same time, an increasing number of internal innovation professionals is formally or informally taking up the role to support individuals and teams in the application of these tools and techniques: Innovation Drivers.

In their quest to transform their organizations and drive innovation excellence, Innovation Drivers come to fulfill many different roles. Amongst others, Innovation Drivers are intrapreneurs who develop and accelerate innovation programs; they act as coaches,  mentors and motivators to innovating individuals and teams; they are ambassadors and shapers of the firm’s entrepreneurial culture and strategy; they are builders of social networks; they are scouts to learn about internal and external best practices; and they serve as consultants to senior management. The Innovation Driver Certification Programme empowers Innovation Drivers to develop their organization’s Resources (People), Processes, and Values for innovation.
