Making Innovation Happen


Demonstrate superior customer engagement

Course Code: VS17

Duration: 1 day


How do the most successful innovators generate more than their fair share of smart ideas? How do they unleash the creative talent of their people? How do they move ideas through their organisations and supply chains that are not only creative but fast to market? Real innovation is often a messy, experimental process that requires a revitalised mind set.

This programme represents a great opportunity to transform your thinking and skills to become an effective innovator. Understand how innovation happens in practice and why some companies excel at it while others flounder and never make a breakthrough.

Who Should Attend

​The audience for the programme are entrepreneurs in start-ups or small firms to middle-senior managers in medium to global sized firms. The programme is equally valuable to managers in non-profit organisations, governmental institutions, or any similar institution or organisation. The programme requires no background in innovation or product development and all relevant tools and frameworks will be explained from very basic concepts.


Innovation is not just about having ideas, it is about being able to implement your exciting new ideas successfully. That’s definitely no easy task and one that requires a combination of skill-sets. This programme will teach you how to look beyond your organisation to generate fresh ideas for innovation. We will help you pinpoint your innovation challenges and develop a robust yet flexible action plan so you can create and drive organisational value and secure buy-in so your innovations will stick.
