About the Event

BACK BY POPULAR DEMAND. The Fast 'n Furious Innovation programme is an intensive series of three 2.5 hour virtual workshops, homework and mentoring using the Zoom platform across three weeks in October with a briefing session held between 18th to 25th September. Each company will also receive a follow-up mentoring session 4-6 weeks after completion to support your innovation project progress.

Designed to kick-start a real innovation challenge in your business and accelerate its commercialisation, the focus is on practical, actionable tools and processes to use in your business right now.

COVID-19 has thrown up many challenges and subsequently provided many opportunities. It’s knowing how and where to look for the opportunities that will set businesses apart.

There’s never been a more crucial time to think differently and innovate – to implement something new into the market from a consumer or customer point of view. Innovation isn’t just about new products: using Doblin’s 10 types of Innovation principles, we assess opportunities to innovate across services, communication, processes and business models.

Key Principles of the programme:

  • Identify the role of innovation in delivering the business strategy. What type of innovation is required to ignite your business for the post-COVID-19 ‘New Normal’?
  • Understand the priority business capabilities you need to develop to improve your innovation performance consistently.
  • Identify and work on a specific innovation challenge that’s relevant for your business today using challenge statement principals. What innovation is required to grow your business now?
  • Utilise appropriate tools and processes based on Design-led thinking and Lean Start-up principles to kick-start your innovations journey to market.

The course was designed by XPotential™ and is run by Mike Harley who has over 30 years marketing, sales, innovation and export leadership experience in the food and consumer packaged goods sector around the world. LinkedIn profile:
