About the session

In this workshop, you will experience a real case of a legacy corporation heavily threatened by a challenger scale-up expanding cross-industry. Despite efforts to leverage innovation to maintain market dominance, it remains unsuccessful.
Your challenge will be to identify the bottlenecks and knowledge gaps happening at each level of the organization.

In the end, you will understand:
- How each knowledge gap is related to an Innovation Management skill that can be learned.

- How the right skills empower teams to solve problems internally and achieve desired outcomes.

- And, by “learning while doing”, you enable your organization to emerge with both a solution to a problem and new capabilities at different levels – hence, a more innovative company.
