This workshop is about breathing ideas into ideas. We will help you refine your propositions, defining how they will work in practice. With our help, you will develop prototypes, business case and activation plan.
- Build your innovative idea into a prototype
- Describe your idea – How will it look and work? Who are the end users? What are the features and functionality?
- Create the business case
- How much investment needed? What are the KPIs for the pilot? How will you measure progress? What is the expected ROI?
- What will the impact be? How does it shift your brand?
- Map out an activation plan
- What is the implementation plan and roll-out?
- Who and what do you need to make this happen? e.g. project team, experts, IT, consultants, creative agencies, etc.
- How can you move to a pilot and minimum viable product?
Once you’ve undertaken the above exercises, we can act as an evaluating panel that the participants pitch their ideas and business case to.
The prototyping workshop can be taken as a follow-up to the ideation workshop.
The benefits of our Ideation and Prototyping workshops are:
- Bring you from problem to actionable solution in less than a month, catalysing appetite for change and actual change.
- Facilitate relationship building with peers across professional services.
- Learn how to engender a culture of innovation and collaboration, which places the competitive positioning of your firm at its heart.
Who should attend?
Any leader, professional or manager keen to drive innovation.
