Innovation Labs Offer Creative Business Solutions

September 18, 2019

Woman standing in front of whiteboardWe’ve been hearing for years of the impending “death of retail.” Now, retailers are having to find creative, innovative solutions to gain customer’s attention. One way that is happening is through retail innovation labs.

Retailers use labs to discover new ideas, partnerships, and collaborations to meet consumer demands and industry challenges. Well-known brands such as Coca-Cola, Ikea, and Home Depot are using labs to come up with innovative solutions that will make them stand out within their industries.

These labs allow retailers to test out forward-thinking concepts before introducing them in stores, potentially saving wasted money on a bad idea.

With an M.B.A. in Innovation and Entrepreneurship, you’ll explore the intersection of design, innovation, creativity, entrepreneurship, and sustainable business modeling to develop a leadership mindset to solve the complex opportunities in today’s demanding marketplace.

Unlike most arguments that start with an observation about the world and work back to a Creator, the ontological argument starts with the idea that based on the meaning of the word “God,” there has to be a God. There are many ways to make this argument but the simplest way is this: If it’s possible that God exists, then God exists.

As Christians, we should know and understand that there are good, sound arguments for God’s existence and be prepared to explain them to our skeptical friends.
