During this one-hour event, Dr. Govindarajan will offer an amazingly simple and highly effective three box solution framework for leading innovation, which deals with the problem of innovation faced by many organizations; how do you re-invent, while still meeting the performance requirements of the current business.
The Institute for Management Studies is excited to announce a special virtual event with Dr. Vijay Govindarajan, who will receive the 2022 IMS Lifetime Achievement Award for his contributions to innovation in strategy.
This is only the fifth time in its 48 year history that IMS has awarded this prestigious honor. The first was to Dr. Russell Ackoff for his work on strategy and systems thinking; second went to Dr. Marshall Goldsmith for his leadership development and coaching contributions; the third was given to Dr. Beverly Kaye for her trailblazing work in the field of career development. And in 2020, we announced our fourth recipient of this coveted award to Dr. David Ulrich for his impact to organizational development and shaping the HR profession.
