How to find Innovation Opportunities - How to make Innovation Real

 
 
 

 
 
 

Innovation requires both the creativity to find ideas and then the execution necessary to deliver it. Both are critical components to successful innovation. An innovative enterprise must retain their thought- and opinion-leaders (about 18% of employees) to continuously innovate their business. In the digital era, innovation projects are initiated and delivered differently from traditional ones. Therefore your company must have 2 major skillsets – how to find and shape innovation ideas (creativity) and how to seamlessly deliver in a complex business environment (execution).

Introduction:
TRACK 1. EXPLORE INNOVATION OPPORTUNITIES

Innovation = Creativity + Execution. The creativity side of this equation is not easy for many of us. We have continued to limit the scope of our knowledge by constantly learning specific subject matters and developing varying forms of ‘expertise’. To overcome this requires not only an approach to explore innovation opportunities, but also the ability to see things differently by taking on different mindsets. This program will open your eyes to some of your own knowledge/experience prejudices and biases, while also providing a starting point for using design thinking and other techniques to find, shape and refine opportunities and ideas for innovation.
