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
