Rita Shor and Anne Greer, Co-Program Directors, explain all in this video. 

As mid- to senior-level managers in innovation, product/service development and commercialization, we integrate and use market trends, user needs, technology, internal systems, investments & innovation methods—from idea stage, through feasibility, development and launch. We bump up against realities of aligning work to corporate strategies, managing parallel paths to solve an issue, and collaborating with diverse functions from throughout the organization. Improving our leadership skills and operational know how are the primary goals of this council.
