About the session

Innovation thrives on anarchy (the good kind). KICKBOX works bottom-up by tapping into the distributed knowledge of your employees. They get feedback from customers and know your daily processes best.

The main goals of the program are:

...to create new products and services. This will also brand your company as innovative for customers, investors and employees.

... to educate your employees on the nonlinear innovation process and creating a lasting innovation culture is crucial.

... to make employee innovation visible across your company and onboard all the different stakeholders. Doing so while reduce administrative work with an automated innovation project workflow

If you're interested do not miss the opportunity to hear how rready engages employees by unleashing their ambition and creativity and releasing their intrapreneurial power directly from two founders of the program.
