NACS Innovation Leadership Program at MIT

October 31 - November 1

Building on MIT’s prestigious reputation and innovative culture, this program combines research-based management frameworks with practical hands-on experiences, and offers networking opportunities for top-tier convenience industry leaders. Attendees (from retail companies only) will directly apply methods and frameworks to their own businesses – to build innovation capability and improve business results.

The NACS Innovation Leadership Program offers convenience leaders the opportunity to:

  • Learn how to build an innovation culture – focused on skills, desire, freedom of action, high commitment and high integrity
  • Recognize and overcome mental models that inhibit innovation
  • Leverage the principles and processes of design thinking
  • Identify choices for responding to disruptive competition
  • Develop digital business models
  • Apply innovative methods for designing work and operating models that engage employees/create competitive advantage
  • Experience first-hand MIT’s entrepreneurial innovation ecosystem

The power of innovation at MIT can’t be denied. A 2015 research study determined that MIT alumni have created over 30,000 companies with over 4.6 million employees and nearly $2 trillion in annual revenues – which would be the world’s 10th largest GDP if measured as a country.
