Learn how to (not) kill innovation

Lean Innovation  Manager is our practical training for innovation managers. In this program, innovation managers learn from field experts how to successfully drive innovation in their organizations. The training comprises three levels: Basic, Expert, and Leader.

We show you the most overlooked and ignored success factors by innovation managers.  The key reasons why their projects are slow, and below expectations.

We show you what it really takes to be able to deliver impact. What goes wrong in most innovation programs, but you hardly hear off!

Maybe you think you know. But do you know what you don’t know? Do you really know what good innovation management looks like? Do not waste your time, be brutally honest.

Finally, an innovation program that makes real impact.

* Hands-on tips and tricks 

* Beyond the buzz and noise

* Innovation thought-leaders

* Field experts and peers

What participants say

Our programs are endorsed by thought-leaders
like Dan Toma and Tendayi Viki .

"Extremely dense wealth of info and inspiration to tap into"

"Only killer, no filler"

"Already have actionable items to start with immediately"

Most organizations limit themselves in their growth potential. Limited by a static workforce and leadership system. Do you recognize this:

 

love to talk about innovation, but don’t walk the talk.
enjoy innovation trainings, but lack real impact on the job.
handles innovation not as job, but a hobby starting tomorrow.

 

Many leaders feel like they’re trapped in a hamster wheel and teams feel frustrated as they don’t seem to make impact. Leaders do not provide enough trust to teams, and they are right. The reason : Innovation teams are often short in skills, capacity and mindset. Innovators are right since they hardly have access to these resources and get demotivated.

The program to transform to real innovation

In ‘Basic’ the participants learn about the innovation process on the micro level (project implementation) and macro-level (control). Basis is the entry into our practical training for innovation managers and lays the foundation for building a deep understanding of innovation in companies.
Professional’ is structured as a coherent program and deepens four central areas of innovation work in the company. The prerequisite for participation in Professional is the module Basic’ or comparable expertise. We offer Professional only as a complete program, but the individual modules can be completed in any order. Each module is structured as follows: training (1 day), follow-up mission, Q&A session (90 min).

WE CAN HELP

You’ve attended lots of conferences already. And read all the books.

But ask yourself this: has anyone ever really helped you with a practical example? Giving you personal advice on your blind spots?

An expert who has been working with hundreds of companies on this? Who knows the pitfalls, most made mistakes?

We thought so. It is time to become a master in innovation management and we can help you out.

We are innovators, we know what you’re living through. We do not believe in just sharing theory, but the hard real-life learning. Based on this mastery we help you to apply the right tools, techniques, strategies, and frameworks and master the essentials of innovation yourself.

What we are going to teach you, has helped our clients get 1 mio additional funding within 2 months.

And of course, we also learned this the hard way.
We were not an overnight success.

It is our decades of experience and the number of companies we’ve helped that helped us truly understand how stakeholder management works. How it is done.

We have fallen on our face (several times).
We have learned.
And iterated.
And learned some more.
And this course is the result.

This is what we are NOT going to teach you. 

 

You are NOT going to get another canvas (do we really need more?). Instead we are going to talk about the nitty gritty details. What to do  in your everyday workday to make a difference. 

 

This is also not a videocourse containing 25 hours of video materials. You are going to work with us directly, benefiting from our experience and many case studies.  Guess no one told you about the real learning impact video courses have?

…AND WE KNOW

Go from “no one understands what I am doing” to “I know exactly what it takes to get supported”.

We will not teach you another canvas, but we go deep into the topic of great innovation management.

From our decade-long experience, we know this makes the biggest difference. That is why we picked this topic to help you with.

We can save you a lot of time, frustration, and experimental moves. All by teaching you our knowledge of innovation management.

We know it is too little about boots on the ground. Most decisions are not in the hand of innovators, but their leaders. So let us help you get exactly the outcome you want.

Save time
and frustration

DO THINGS

DIFFERENTLY*

We work with a proven method that has taken us years to develop. And we are going to share all our best practices with you.

* STEP 1: From good to great innovation management
We dive in immediately: no long theoretical conversations or new models. We know that every great innovation project starts with expectation management. This is about learning to speak the same language, communicating the right goals in the right way (and how to NOT do this).

We guarantee aha-moments. Not because our content is earth-shattering new. But because you recognize your own struggles and get a solution for your problems.

* STEP 2: Advanced 
We show you how to set your goals and a project framework that is required for success. You get to work on your project with our support. At the end of this step, you will have a system to show your stakeholders the value of innovation.

* STEP 3: Ensuring accountability
Without showing that you actually deliver on your promises, it will be hard to get recognition. Getting noticed is your responsibility. It is too easy to wait for other people to see what you do. Make them! We will give you concrete tools and techniques to get this done.
