During this hands-on workshop, we will take you through what we think is perhaps the easiest, fastest and most elegant way to innovate and run innovations.
We’ve been taught how to start innovation based upon customer needs or even our own desire to make a dent in the universe. Perhaps you already have good knowledge and techniques for ideation and product launch. We wont alter a comma in what you know or what you do. Rather, we invite you to look at innovation and the innovation process from a different angle. You’ll become more diverse, be able to include and lead more people, co-create with other businesses and reach solutions backed by a crowd who have their heart in it. The trick is to start from meaning. As you start your innovation process, you take a step back and not just go for the desired experience as the end result but right from the beginning! The day will end with you having a strategy and a plan for how you will use meaning driven innovation.
During the day, we’ll go through cases, examples and your ideas and experience. You’ll meet and network with likeminded professionals in an intensive and fun day.
