Description

Innovation is turning an idea into something which is valuable to a customer. It is fundamental to business growth, and seen as the most important competency by virtually all global CEOs. Yet many companies both large and small are struggling to produce innovative solutions which actually deliver results.

In fact, 96% of all innovations released by companies fail. Why is this? In order to produce successful innovations, you and your team need to have capabilities in the following dimensions

  • Capability to generate ideas
  • Capability to refine, manage and execute on those ideas
  • An organisational environment which enables and encourages people to produce innovations

These are the 3 Dimensions of Innovation. This course not only explains what innovation is and how it works, but also gives you a complete guide of the capabilities required within your organisation to actually develop new offerings which will delight your customers.

The 3 Dimensions of Innovation will teach you about every capability you need to improve your ability to generate ideas, developing a high-performance innovation team to execute on them, and setting an innovation culture which supports your corporate vision and strategy. You will benefit through:

  • Reducing risk around innovation projects
  • Generating solutions which actually address customer challenges
  • Reduced time spent managing innovation projects with greater speed to market
  • Diversifying your innovation types and enabling new business models

CEO & Founder of Improvides

Author, Creativity Coach and Innovation Consultant with over a decade's experience in enhancing creativity and managing large-scale innovation projects.

I work with and coach anyone who has the challenge of generating new ideas, figuring out how to implement them and become more innovative. I help them achieve this by helping them develop their corporate and leadership innovations capabilities, give their teams the techniques and tools to evaluate and refine ideas and execute innovation projects, and actually improving people's creativity to generate the ideas (Yes, it can be done). This helps them break through their creative challenges and find avenues for growth they didn't see before, earning them more money and recognition as leaders of innovation.
