We developed an innovation lab for experimenting with technology platforms to explore new products and services in online learning for improvement in business education. This CEO-level initiative involved the following:

Market Opportunities: Analyzed trends, customer needs, and business competencies to show how future offerings must be designed to create new markets and tailor to their needs.

Canvasing Technologies: Identified emerging digital technologies to make forays into new markets including digital case studies, business simulation games, and virtual collaboration tools.

C-Suite Level Collaboration: Our work involved collaborating with executive-level leadership at technology platform companies for implementing a vendor evaluation, selection, and rollout process.

Rapid Prototyping: Created a “virtual sandbox” for prototyping solutions consisting of tools and templates for intaking, deploying, and evaluating emerging technologies.


Greater market agility through a process of innovation consisting of technologies, curated experiments and timelines to keep a pulse on market trends and enable HBP to respond quickly to new opportunities.
