INNOVATION LEADERS

INNOVATION LEADERS is FOR YOU AND/OR YOUR TEAM IF YOU WANT TO MAKE YOUR MARK PROMOTING INNOVATION IN LARGE ORGANISATIONS WHILE CLARIFYING YOUR VALUE PROPOSITION, INTEGRATING CUSTOMER AND PEER FEEDBACK AND MANAGING STAKEHOLDERS. 

The workshop is also intended for “change agents”: individuals in charge of transforming product/service/process in an existing organisation and people in charge of strategic programme implementation.

Upon completion of this workshop, participants will be able to lead and consult innovation programmes and contribute to the implementation of a culture of innovation inside large organisations. They will leave with increased skills and confidence and exemplify what it means to be an Innovation Leader.

Outcomes: Over the course of three days, participants will:

  • Learn highly effective tools for defining, designing and expressing Value Propositions and Customer Profiles (Tools: Value Proposition Design, Strategyzer.com).

  • Prototype a product very rapidly, integrate feedback and pivot a concept (Tool: looping.com).

  • Experience and get an increased awareness of their own Innovative leadership and how to express that leadership in the context of teams and programs (Reference: IDEO Field Guide, Designkit.org).

  • Use leadership techniques to create powerful emulation and engagement towards innovation inside and outside the project team.

  • Define change management initiatives and network strategies to influence corporate culture and change programme.

  • Deal with Innovation archetypes when facing resistance: how to leverage them, influence them and develop tactics for and against them so that innovation may happen.

  • Outline multiple paths for driving innovation inside large corporations with related benefits and drawbacks.
