About the content
The Creative Box course has been named the Best MOOC Designed by a University or School and given the Teaser of the Year award by a jury of industry experts, HR managers and Internet users. The awards were given by My Mooc, Le Journal du Net (JDN) and Google France.
This course about innovation is richly illustrated with concrete real-life examples. You will be invited to learn from interviews with big businesses like PSA Peugeot Citroën, The CSA Institute, Bosch, Darty, SAP, and also young entrepreneurs from startups like TravelerCar; Cook-ease, Meat-me.
But what is innovation and how can you innovate? Can anyone do it, in business or in everyday life?
We think the answer to that question is yes, and we want to help you discover how you can innovate by sharing a simple process with you: four exploratory steps, creative but also realistic, designed to wake up the potential innovator in all of us.
The MOOC is aimed at:
- Anyone who wants to understand how innovations are created by companies
- Anyone who has an idea of innovation but does not know how to find the relevant target and how to make it marketable.
- Anyone who aims to launch an entrepreneurial project. Throughout this MOOC, you will have the opportunity to test out your capacity for finding innovative ideas. When your business is up and running, you and your business will benefit from your ability to reproduce the methods you will learn during this course.
- Engineers who understand the technological aspects of innovation and would like to improve their understanding of marketing and user aspects
