COVID-19 has thrown up many challenges and subsequently provided many opportunities. Knowing how and where to look for the opportunities now will set your businesses apart.
The Fast ‘n Furious Innovation programme kicks off with an hour-long individual company briefing session held between September 7th– 11th, followed by three 2.5-hour Virtual Workshops using the Zoom platform (September 23rd, 30th and October 7th). Each company will also receive a follow-up mentoring session 4-6 weeks after completion to support your innovation project progress.
During your briefing call, Mike takes you through your Innovation Competency Survey Results (previously completed online). He will then guide you through the process of identifying a ‘real’ business innovation that you can work on live during the course.
The Active Learning program has soft copies of presentation materials and templates. Weekly homework tasks with coaching, guides you through your innovation challenge to accelerate its commercialisation. The focus is on practical, actionable tools and processes to use in your business right now.
There’s never been a more crucial time to think differently and innovate – to implement something new into the market that addresses current consumer and customer problems and desires. Innovation isn’t just about new products: using Doblin’s 10-types of Innovation principles, we assess opportunities to innovate across services, communication, processes and business models.
Fundamental Programme Principles:
- Identify the role of innovation in delivering the business strategy. What type of innovation is required to ignite your business for the post-COVID-19 world?
- Work on a specific innovation challenge that’s relevant for your business today, to accelerate business results and embed the learning. What innovation is required to grow your business now?
- Utilise appropriate tools and processes based on Design-Led thinking and Lean Start-up principles to kick-start your innovations journey to market.
- Understand the priority business capabilities you need to develop that will consistently improve your innovation performance and return on investment.
