Join Idea Drop and PwC in London for the second in a series innovation-focussed networking breakfasts. Set within the context of our proven strategic innovation lifecycle framework, we’ll fuse expert guests speakers and a curated, invite-only guest list to explore, discuss and share insight on how to harness innovation and continuous improvement to drive your business forward.

In this event, we’ll be focussing on the second phase of the lifecycle: running successful pilots. In this session, we’ll be discussing:

  • How to plan and launch agile and early pilots to quickly evaluate use cases
  • The importance of critical success factors to a pilot, and how to define and measure against them.
  • How to validate and refine business cases
  • How to define risks and mitigate against potential pilot issues.
  • How to determine which ideas proceed to an implementation phase.


  • C-suite execs including CIOs, CEOs, COOs and Innovation directors.
  • Heads of corporate communications, HR and continuous improvement
