Deep Dive Workshops on Innovation and Change
“Hope, Direction, Clarity. Best Retreat Ever.”
These words sum up what participants tell us they get from our Deep Dive Workshops on Innovation and Change. Leaders are all too aware of the urgent and immediate need for innovation and change in higher education. The mission of New Campus Dynamics is to support leaders who are ready to engage and mobilize their campuses to make innovation and change part of everyone’s work. Our Deep Dive Workshops are an important element of any innovation strategy. With our expert design and facilitation, your faculty, administrators, staff and students can learn to take the mystery out of the process of innovation and experience generating ideas that will lead to action.
The faculty for NCD Deep Dive Workshops are drawn from the NCD consulting team. Founding partners Larry Smith and Al Blixt lead each Deep Dive project with other experts added to the faculty as needed. You will learn from the experts who literally “wrote the book” on leading innovation and change.
