Igniting Innovation – One Day, with Assessment

This one-day workshop is for executive teams who, for one reason or another, are struggling with igniting the innovation of their companies Many of these executive teams have recently tried different solutions to ignite their innovation but did not obtain all the outcomes they wanted. For many, they are uncertain on what to do next.

These executive teams are usually facing new disruptive competition from outside their industries or find that their own innovative solutions for new products, services and business models are lacking. And as a result, their financial projects for profitable growth are below stakeholder expectations.

The executive teams who take this workshop see the big picture challenging their organizations.  They realize that only a comprehensive approach to improve innovation will truly create a competitive advantage and improve profitable growth.

In this workshop, the participants will be provided a review of the latest research on innovation and will learn the traits of highly innovative companies and how they are able to remain innovative, year in and year out.  Workshop attendees will also learn the six mistakes companies make when trying to improve their innovation, and the steps to take to overcome these common mistakes. Relevant case studies of innovative companies will also be shared during the workshop.

Participants will also be asked to complete the InnovationOne Health IndexExecutive Version. Based on the Health Index, the participants will learn the strengths and weaknesses of their innovation capability and culture. In addition, they will receive a benchmark report based on their Health Index results, which will show them their relative strengths and weaknesses based on their industry or country. More importantly, participants will receive recommendations on the steps they can take next week, next quarter, and over the next couple of years to become a leading innovative company in their industry.

Unlike other innovation organizational assessments, the InnovationOne Health Index is based on over 15 years of scientific research by InnovationOne founder, C Brooke Dobni, PhD. Dr. Dobni’s research has uncovered how innovative companies become and remain innovative.  Because we have over 3,000 organizations in our database, we can confidently compare your results to the results of other organizations and provide specific recommendations the steps to take to improve your innovation.
