Innovation has always been a core element of organisational development and success. In today’s fast paced, rapidly changing environment, the ability to leverage battle tested best practice techniques to foster innovation has never been more important. The absence of effective innovation strategies causes organisations to fall behind and ultimately suffer poor financial and goal performance.
Whether you work in the private, not-for-profit or government sectors, the tools and techniques for innovation need to be simple and just work. Top universities like University of Virginia’s Darden School of Business and Stanford’s D. School have provided solid research combined with applied practical tools for leaders to utilise in driving innovation. Innovation isn’t new, it’s just often poorly managed in organisations. The concepts in this workshop bring participants up to speed on current best practice in innovation, leveraging innovation principles from around the globe to drive return on investment and achieve key outcomes.
In this half-day workshop, participants learn some of the tried and tested tools that can be applied in any organisational setting. The course also covers the culture and self-efficacy requirements for creating innovation in your organisation to ensure that participants are aware of the highs and lows of the process (innovation isn’t easy!).
This course can also be customised to your organisation’s needs and run in-house.
