Innovative practices in Executive Development
The UNICON Research team is launching an inquiry into innovative practices in our Executive Development businesses. We are reaching out to the entire UNICON community to gather your stories about your innovative practices and learn what innovation looks like in your world. These can be processes, services, products, cultural or organizational innovations - in the classroom or behind the scenes. We are looking for examples of your successes or failures when trying to do things differently. We want to know what you have learned. These stories will be collected, grouped, and analyzed. Our goal is to gain insight into what is being done at your organization and what your organization considers innovative. The larger goal is to understand what kinds of innovation exist in executive education and what is considered innovation.
The UNICON Research Committee is launching this inquiry for our entire membership to learn about your examples of innovation in executive education. We'd love to hear about your innovation stories. These can be shared anonymously.

Great data on this important disruption in education in this article.
