For almost 40 years now, Vijay Govindarajan, the Coxe Distinguished Professor of Management at Tuck, has been researching, teaching, and consulting about innovation through an elegant framework of his own construction: the Three Box Solution.
This spring, Govindarajan is launching two online courses that present his theory of innovation while challenging participants to think deeply about how the theory can be applied to their specific business.
The courses—“Developing Breakthrough Innovations” and “Executing Breakthrough Innovations”—are offered through edX, the online education platform used by colleges and universities across the globe.
Govindarajan says he’s always enjoyed the face-to-face interaction of teaching and consulting in person, but the online edX platform allows him to do something he could never do in an analog world: teach to all the employees of a Fortune 500 company while simultaneously sparking internal conversations about innovation.
“That’s why I find this edX platform to be amazing: it doesn’t make what I do with companies obsolete. In fact, it’s a wonderful way to enhance my impact,” he says.
