Managing Innovation

from the Inside Out


  • Who should attend?

    Senior executives in the medtech space with 10+ years of management experience in strategic planning, R&D, product development, business development, and/or marketing who are responsible for leading innovation efforts within their organization.

  • What should I expect to learn?

    Participants should expect to learn a proven, systematic process for managing innovation in the medtech sector. We also believe the course will provide you with a fresh perspective and new ways of working, which you can use to inspire and mentor others within your organization.

  • When will the course be held?

    The course will be held Wednesday, March 2 through Saturday, March 5, 2016.

  • Where will the course be held?

    The course will take place in the Vidalakis Dining Hall at the Schwab Residential Center  on the Stanford University campus.

  • What is the cost of the course?

    The cost of the course is $10,500 per person for Stanford Biodesign partners and $12,000 per person for participants from all other companies.

  • How do I register?

    To capitalize on the team-based, interactive nature of the course experience, companies must register a group of 6-8 people. These individuals can be from different departments within the same organization, but they will work as a team throughout the program. To initiate a group registration, please contact biodesign-execed@stanford.edu.

  • May I register as an individual?

    Unfortunately, companies may only register a group of 6-8 participants that will work as a team throughout the program. We are not able to accept individual registration requests at this time.

  • Can my company send a group that has fewer than 6-8 participants?

    Over the years, we’ve found that teams of 6-8 work exceptionally well for this program. If your company is not able to send a team of this size, please email us at biodesign-execed@stanford.edu to discuss whether an exception might be possible.

  • What is included in the course fee?

    The course fee includes the program and all program materials, three nights of lodging at the Stanford Park Hotel (Wednesday, March 2 through Saturday, Mar 6), transportation to/from course events, meals, and special course events.

  • What if I do not want to use the course lodging?

    The course is designed as an intense, highly-interactive 3-day experience.  We strongly encourage all participants to stay at the Stanford Park Hotel during the program to maximize your opportunities for collaboration. If this is not possible, exceptions may be made, however, the course tuition will not be adjusted.
