Management of Innovation and Technology
Innovation management is a combination of the management of innovation processes, and change management. It refers to product, business process, marketing and organizational innovation. Innovation management includes a set of tools that allow managers plus workers or users to cooperate with a common understanding of processes and goals. Innovation management allows the organization to respond to external or internal opportunities, and use its creativity to introduce new ideas, processes or products. It is not relegated to R&D; it involves workers or users at every level in contributing creatively to an organization's product or service development and marketing.

Business Ethics and Regulatory Compliance
Ethics is not important merely because the federal securities laws are grounded on ethical principles. Good ethics is also good business. Treating customers fairly and honestly helps build a firm’s reputation and brand, while attracting the best employees and business partners. We can expand the discussion above beyond compliance and ethics to address enterprise risk management and risk governance more broadly. These same program elements, and ethics considerations, are equally critical, but the scope of risks expands beyond regulatory risk to also include market, credit and operational risk, among others. The roles and responsibilities also expand to include risk management, finance, internal audit and other key risk and control functions.
