Corporate Innovation Workshop: Managing Innovation in the Workplace
May 7 @ 10:00 am - 3:00 pm$189
In partnership with Volta, Startup Zone is happy to present the following workshop:
Managing Innovation in the Workplace
Are you maximizing the potential for innovation in your organization?
Managing Innovation in the Workplace calls for three fundamental steps: inspiration, ideation, and implementation. The inspiration phase is the chance to culturally immerse ourselves in customer environments to better understand their wants, needs, and desires. In that same fashion, the ideation phase helps us draw lessons learned from participants to explore creative, outside-the-box, solutions by co-creating prototypes that are culturally aligned with their vision and ideals. This sets the stage to the implementation phase, where solutions are adopted and shared with the general public for feedback and review.
You will learn:
- The 3 steps of the Innovation process to create novel solutions to real-world challenges
- Gain strategies for synthesizing your user research and identifying opportunities for design
- Practice creative techniques to build rapid prototypes and make your ideas come to life
- Learn to effectively test your prototypes with real users and identify promising solutions that you can begin implementing thereafter
Taught by Christine Hamblin (BCA, BSc, MTEI), Atlantic Innovation Lead at Accenture, and certified Human-Centered Design and Design Thinking facilitator; this class will help you learn the process of conceiving and designing new products and services for your business.
Lunch will be provided.
