Resourceful Innovation

Sometimes you only have what you have, and that is enough! Your limitations can be assets!
Learn to innovate – within resources available to you – by applying systematic creativity tools -by breaking away from fixedness, even using the problem as the solution. In this workshop you will consciously harness methods and templates used intuitively by mankind for ages to create new ideas.

Mrinalini D’Costa

Founder & Lead Innovation Consultant at R.A.T Lab

With over 20 years of experience in the management and development of industrial software services and products, Mrinalini is able to harness the wealth of existing knowledge and experience, regardless of the size of the organization, and find the innovation sweet spot. Observing that anyone, with the right tools and systems, can creatively make more with what they have, is an approach that is rarely adopted.

Combining the customer perspective in Design Thinking and risk-driven Lean Startup methodology with Lean UX for design brings together a powerful toolset to address real needs for real customers and create sustainable business models with available resources.

This combination of Rapidly Applying Techniques to jump start great ideas with what you have, iterating through lean experiments and lead development, informed by the users’ needs, is a formula destined for results! Mrinalini is able to help people move their creative minds to tap their full potential or to bring an idea to life.
