Certified Chief Innovation Officer Certification Program

Create. Like No One Else.

Where does the future lie? What is the next revolution that is heading towards us to sweep us off our feet?

One word. Innovation.

Innovation is the new black. In today’s world, survival is innovation. The future of any company depends on its ability to adapt, create and present. At the center of it all lies innovation. In this race to excellence, how does one obtain an edge over the others?

Innovation has escaped the edges of the drawing board and rushed into our lives as part of the digital era we live in. We are touched by innovation with every phone call, every drive home, every wash cycle, and all the while not even realizing it.

Innovation is not merely putting two and two together. It is the process of understanding whether the question seeks the sum of the two, or asks for an equation to define four. In the latter, your possibilities are endless.

The innovators will be the survivors. The innovators will be the creators.

The Certified Chief Innovation Officer (CCIO) program is a two day course of high standard innovation training for corporate executives seeking to understand the key concepts involved in elevating their establishments to higher strata.

Benefits of Innovation Training

Innovation is the light at the end of the tunnel. It is the future of global markets, sustainability and productivity. Successful businesses do not focus their actions in the present but instead on the possibilities of the future. Rocheston’s innovation program is designed along similar lines. Most of the time, we find ourselves so weighed down by the intricacies and problems of today in the world of economics and business, that we often miss the bigger picture. We miss out on the changing times, new technologies and fresh challenges. Innovation training can pull one’s head out of the water, and into the world of endless possibilities.
