TODAY THE FAST EAT THE SLOW
We believe a company’s ability to rapidly translate ideas into action is the ultimate competitive advantage.
TechPlace, Innovation Factory and Haltech, in partnership with Jan Kelley, have developed an exclusive program for progressive businesses to gain the skills, knowledge and tools required to implement a cycle of innovation for real business change.
SESSION 1: WHY INNOVATION IS CRITICAL – MAY 9TH
Organizations are running harder than ever to keep up with the pace of change. And although many companies look to innovate, culture and process often inhibit true change, slowing down idea generation and making it difficult to disrupt from within. It’s time to change that.
WHAT YOU WILL GET: Through interactive exercises and real industry examples, this program will inspire even the biggest naysayer to see that they can contribute to the ideation process, and will activate the creative problem solver in all of us.
SESSION 2: DESIGN THINKING FOR EFFECTIVE PROBLEM SOLVING – JUNE 13TH
The best first step in the innovation process is identifying and even obsessing over your customer’s problem. That’s where Design Thinking comes in – the human centered approach to innovation.
WHAT YOU WILL GET: Learn the fundamentals of the Design thinking methodology and how to put them into practice.
SESSION 3: THINK & ACT LIKE A STARTUP – JULY 11TH
