Free Course: What is Innovation?

Disclaimer, Privacy and Cookies

Only proceed with this course if you agree with the following terms and conditions.

This is a free course, and consequently you should realise that there are limitations to this course. It does not provide all of the functionality, features and support that you would gain from a premium course (that is a course you pay for). For example, there are no assignments, no marking of work, no feedback, no guidance and support, and no certificates.

As you do not need an account for the free course your personal details are not known (if you do not have an account), and so in that case no personal details are stored.

Note: This course only describes what innovation is (in terms of a definition and its benefits). This course does NOT tell you what the innovation process is, nor does it tell you how to innovate. If you want to know about those things then select the appropriate course on the training page.

You accept the materials as they are. There is no warranty, and no guarantee of fitness for purpose. This business does not accept liability for any inaccuracies or errors, limited scope of content, nor any consequences that arise from using this material. No responsibility will be assigned to this business for problems caused by other parties, which may include, but is not limited to, the delivery of this information across the Internet.

Like virtually all web sites today, this site uses cookies. The purpose of the session cookie is to give you a better experience or provide some useful functionality.

Anonomous data is collected using Google Analytics to track page views, etc.

The only personal details that are recorded are those that you provide when you complete a form that asks for your details, when you send an email, or the creation of your account. This business will not pass your details on to other businesses. You will not receive lots of emails trying to sell you things; no spam.

Whatever you read and whatever advice you are given, it is always your responsibility to check with your colleagues before doing anything. You, and your colleagues, know your organisation or business best and only you and your colleagues can make appropriate decisions, and take the responsibility for your decisions and actions. This business accepts no liability for your actions.

In the case of innovation, you should always be aware that it comes with significant risks. It is always your (and your colleagues) responsibility to assess the risks before proceeding, and to have an appropriate risk management strategy in place. Further, you should always realise that the investments you make in innovation do not always result in success.

These products and services cover only part of the topic of innovation. They do not provide all of the knowledge and skills that you must acquire in order to innovate at the highest level of success. In addition to the full range of innovation skills, you also need good generic business skills, good experience, and common sense.

However, it is hoped that you do find this course interesting and useful, and a great deal of effort has been invested in this course with the aim of giving you a good experience, and a taster of what is provided in the premium courses. Any suggestions for improvement are always welcome.
