With new technologies appearing almost daily and against a backdrop of constantly changing client and consumer demands, the ability to innovate is critical – it’s the only way to sustain business growth and a competitive edge.
If you leave innovation to unfold by chance, failure is virtually guaranteed. The best innovation programmes are underpinned by a fusion of systematic processes, people and best-in-class tools.
You may already have these magic ingredients of a great team, new ideas and possibly even technology and tooling to support your innovation agenda. But blending and connecting these three pillars is often where many enterprises struggle. Developing a truly sustainable innovation process that is scalable, hard-wired into the culture of the organisation and continually delivering tangible impact requires meticulous planning and execution.
Perhaps you have other major innovation-focussed questions that remain unanswered:
- How do we align innovation with our top-level business goals?
- How do we find good ideas? What if we just don’t have enough?
- Or what if we have too many good ideas but don’t have the time or resources to evaluate or progress them?
- Who is responsible for innovation and how should be efficiently and systematically execute ideas?
- How do we prove the value and measure the success of innovation?
- How do we embed innovation into our company’s culture?
The creation of a sustainable innovation programme requires preparation, planning, execution and measurement. That’s why we’ve teamed up with Chaucer to bring you a unique programme of 6 workshops and events that will teach you how to do exactly this.
After overseeing hundreds of global enterprise innovation programmes, we’ve developed a proven implementation plan that consistently delivers results, impact and value. Access to this insight is usually reserved exclusively for our clients, but for the first time via a special programme of events in 2020, we’re lifting the lid on the secrets to innovation success.
Over the course of six high-energy workshops, we’ll break down the processes, tools and steps you need to take to develop a comprehensive innovation implementation plan. Through a mix of expert innovation thought leaders, guest panelist, case studies and practical hands-on exercises, you’ll be guided through the creation of a bespoke innovation roadmap, tailored for your organisation. By the end of the cycle of six workshops, you’ll be able to take this plan back into your business to supercharge your innovation initiative.

The first phase of the innovation implementation plan is to clearly define your desired outcomes and key business objectives, both in terms of your top-level organisational goals, and also the more innovation-specific aims. In this workshop we will be defining critical success factors for your innovation programme.
In this interactive workshop, we’ll help you define a structured process that mirrors your internal business structure that enables ideas to be refined, evaluated and progressed at pace. We will also look into assigning responsibilities at each stage of the workflow as well as help you to map out and develop a plan on how to engage the key stakeholders for the project.
Part 3 is going to get you thinking about your strategic company goals and how to align them with innovation challenges. Because if they are, employees will trust that their ideas will be actioned and will have a tangible impact on your organisation. So it is very important to get this step right from the very beginning!
We will also guide you through shaping a rewards and recognition programme that drives ongoing engagement with these challenges as well as with a wider innovation initiative.
Between the ideation and the final rollout of an idea, it’s vital that you and your entire team understand what makes an idea useful, valuable and effective, so you can all decide where to focus your energy for maximum impact. In this workshop we will be constructing a bespoke idea evaluation process to help you quickly identify the most promising ideas.
Crafting an internal communication plan is an essential part of the implementation as it will not only inform and educate but also will incentivise and generate buzz around your innovation initiative. During this workshop, we will be looking at strategies and tactics of your internal marketing campaign. Expect a lot of brainstorming combined with our strategic communications plan framework.
Part 6: Analysing Results and Reporting Back to the Business
Attendees will get insights and tools of how to build a structure for analysing results, what key metrics you should care about and include in your monthly or quarterly reports back to the business. We will also be looking at how to read this data and understand ways to improve the results as well as how to conduct a cost or benefit analysis of your winning Ideas.
