Experimentation In Organisations

People are often not willing to try new solutions because of their fear of failing. “If it has never been done, how do you know it works?” is a common objection that enables good proposals to be swept under the rug. Trying, however, is not the same as adopting. This course focuses on the importance of experimentation in organisations and provides hands-on experience with proposing solutions to practical problems and designing a strategy to evaluate their effectiveness.
