About the workshop:
Preparing your organisation for innovation by supercharging collaborative behaviours.
For truly sustainable innovation, the first step in any Innovation Master Plan is your collaboration strategy. Ideation, the creation and collection of ideas, does not embed innovation. It’s a mechanism for individuals to throw ideas at a wall and hope they stick. Ideation fails more than it succeeds.
This workshop focuses on techniques to elevate and focus collaborative behaviours to go where ideation doesn’t – a sustainable innovation culture. A culture in which individuals, by default, constantly look for ways to help renew and reinvigorate the organisation so it can flourish in a highly pressured, constantly-evolving operating environment.
Measuring and mastering collaborative behaviours will take your organisation to what we at Innosis call the Innovation Sweet Spot, the point at which these collaborative behaviours naturally evolve into a sustainable innovation culture, independent of tools and technology.
Our focus is on the way people approach their work, their mindset, their understanding of what ‘working socially’ or ‘working out loud’ actually means in a business context.
You will leave the workshop with a folio of Innovation Sweet Spot measures, methods and techniques as well as a solid start to an Innovationoriented Collaboration Strategy for your own organisation.
