Accelerate Innovation Group Hack

Value Proposition: Hack Through Bureaucracy and Structure to Encourage Employee Innovation and Quickly Make Decisions

In many organizations, no process exists to allow employees to brainstorm ideas, collaborate, move ideas forward, prototype and evaluate their projects. In many cases, employees do not know how to conduct an analysis and prepare a business case with a return on investment analysis to justify their innovative ideas.

The InnovationOne Accelerate Innovation Group Hack Process remedies these concerns and provides organizations with a methodology to generate, evaluate and approve innovations—through top management–in two days.

With our methodology, organizations can rapidly break through the barriers of their organizations and generate, build upon, and implement innovation that improves their organizational success.

Participants in this workshop will learn-by-doing the InnovationOne Accelerate Innovation Group Hack Process. This is a seven-step process, which includes empathy, definition, ideation, business case development, prototype, test, and implementation.

Participants will engage in the first four stages and develop a proposal with a business case to take back to their executive leaders for a decision. Participants will learn about group processes. They will use tools for brainstorming, prioritizing ideas, developing a business case and for pitching an innovation proposal to top management.
