Innovation Bootcamp is a course of 6 workshops designed to help innovation leaders embed a culture and programme of innovation into their organisations.
Participate in our hands-on workshops to access the resources you need to successfully build, implement and drive impactful innovation across your organisation.
Each workshop is limited to the first 40 sign-ups on a first-come, first-served basis. At the end of each event, two lucky attendees will win a follow up 1-on-1 workshop in which our innovation experts will partner with you to help define your company’s innovation goals and critical success factors, completely free of charge.
The most challenging element of innovation is putting it into a framework. Some still believe that innovation is defined by a lightbulb one-time moment. However, the smartest organisations know that innovation doesn’t happen by chance. Smart organisations follow a clear process and pathway to ensure that the brightest ideas are continually captured, refined, progressed and executed. We call it always-on innovation.
The first step in building an innovation process is to clearly define your innovation goals, both in terms of your top-level organisational goals, and also the more innovation-specific aims. These may differ from organisation to organisation but it is a critical cornerstone in the process, as they provide the guiding direction and help everyone move towards the same goal.
Your business and innovation goals might look ahead to the end of 2020 or even 5 or 10 years out. That’s why it is important to break these down into smaller goals and also set critical success metrics that serve to measure your innovation implementation plan and indicate if you are still moving towards the right direction.
Our first workshop will provide you with a framework from which to map out your innovation programme goals based on your business objectives. You’ll also be guided on how to define your critical success factors as micro indicators to keep you and your team on the right track.
In this workshop, you’ll discover:
- How to define innovation goals based on your top-level business objectives
- How to stay focused on your long term goals
- What makes good innovation goals and what the most common mistakes setting them are
- The importance and purpose of critical success factors
- How to align and attach these to your innovation programme
- How having goals and critical success factors impacts your company’s culture
- How often should you be reviewing your innovation goals
After completing this workshop, you will have a clear understanding of the power, importance and role of innovation-based goals and critical success factors.
