Workshops: Innovate in a few hours
If you only have a few hours, but still want to achieve a specific outcome for your innovation agenda, you need Nick to facilitate a workshop.
In Nick’s workshops, your team know exactly what they are hoping to produce and there is a structured approach to achieve these goals faster than ever before.
Workshops are excellent for teams that need to overcome a roadblock, generate new ideas or plan out next steps.
As a result of the structured approach, a single workshop can deliver more specific outcomes than weeks or months of teams working informally without an experienced facilitator.
Growth Sprints: Deliver innovation in just a few weeks
Sprints come from the world of Agile management, where a small team works together for a fixed period of time in order to achieve a specific goal or meet a set milestone.
A Growth Sprint is an accelerated innovation sprint, where a team sets out to generate, develop and test a new innovation idea, or identify how to build up an important specific innovation capability.
Usually these take a few weeks, where I work with one of your teams away from their normal job to solve a specific innovation challenge you might have.
You will be amazed how your company’s challenges which previously would have taken your teams months (or even a year or more) to solve using traditional methods can make significant progress in a fraction of the time and for far less budget.
Growth Sprints are also a vital method to validate progress on specific innovation initiatives, a core part of prioritising a healthy innovation portfolio.
