Innovation Training

"Learning and innovation go hand in hand. The arrogance of success is to think that what you did yesterday will be sufficient for tomorrow" (William Pollard)

 

Innovative organizations have employees who feel encouraged, able and supported by leadership. We can support your organization in developing the right mindset, culture and processes to capture value through our experiential learning workshops and bootcamps.

Our online and in-person innovation programs compile over a decade of experience in teaching, consulting, and innovation - ensuring content that is relevant and practical to your needs. We tailor our programs to your organization and apply interactive, hands-on learning with real customers.

In designing the course as a stand-alone, or part of a larger transformation programme, we apply the following principles:

  1. The right mindset determines the outcome,

  2.  Understand the big picture, but focus on the individual, and

  3. Avoid templates regardless of the number of successes - all engagements (entity, person, project) come with their own assumptions and need validation.

Reach out for a discussion to understand how we can support your organizational needs.
