Overview

Vijay Govindarajan, known as VG, is a New York Times and Wall Street Journal Best Selling author, Coxe Distinguished Professor at Dartmouth's Tuck School of Business, two-time winner of the prestigious McKinsey Award for the Best Article published in Harvard Business Review, and one of the world’s leading experts on strategy and innovation.

VG brings his expert knowledge to this Professional Certificate program, which will introduce you to the Three Box framework, which has the potential to transform the future of any organization that embraces it – whether it’s a large enterprise, a mid-size business, a start up, or a nonprofit organization.

The Three Box framework is a simple and proven method that allows organizations to successfully allocate an organization’s energy, time and resources across three boxes: Box 1 Manage the present:Managing the core business at peak efficiency Box 2 Selectively forget the past: Abandon ideas, practices, and attitudes that could inhibit innovation Box 3 Create the future: Develop and convert breakthrough ideas into new products and businesses

The Three Box framework makes leading innovation within your organization easier. VG has worked with CEOs and top management teams in more than 25% of the Fortune 500 firms, including Boeing, Coca-Cola, FedEx, General Electric, IBM, J.P. Morgan Chase, Johnson & Johnson, The New York Times, Procter & Gamble, Sony, and Wal-Mart, to discuss, challenge, and escalate their thinking about strategy and innovation. VG’s extensive research and consulting has resulted in the Best Seller The Three Box Solution: A Strategy for Leading Innovation, on which the two courses are based.
