How to improve and develop the ability to innovate within companies and teams? Which frameworks are crucial in this context, and where to find helpful ideas?
On these questions we offer you, depending on the maturity level of your company, tailor-made methods, formats and impulses.
The topic of innovation and digitalization is a broad field. It’s important for you to narrow down specific areas and to sharpen the focus for further development steps.
You want to define the specific research areas for your innovation project, understand difficult situations from a customer perspective and identify innovation drivers and barriers? And you want to determine the critical success conditions in your company for an innovation-friendly culture?
In this case, our 1-2-day innovation workshop is the best way to start. We exam your cultural history, discuss the situation of your business environment, as well as your business challenges. With methods, such as Design-Thinking or Lean Innovation, we develop a new understanding of creative and interdisciplinary collaboration, interactive and rapid development processes and work on first prototypical solutions.
Silicon Valley is the most dynamic economy in the world, because standards are set here, global (mega-) trends are developed and it’s the spot where the most innovative tech companies are founded.
Again and again the question comes up, which forms of corporate culture, management and work organization influence and support this unique ability to innovate?
