2-day practical seminar with focus on agile innovation methods.
In our fast-moving times, where projects are under time pressure, highly complex and frequently confronted with changes, agile innovation management offers a solution: through the iterative and incremental method of working, it is possible to react flexibly to possible changes. As a result, project teams can work up to twice as fast in half the time without losing quality.
Everywhere people talk about agile methods. But which methods are suitable for which step in your innovation management? And how are they best applied?
Agile innovation methods: Doing the right thing, doing it right.
Agile innovation methods combine working on the right steps in innovation projects with an agile approach to deliver visible results quickly, work in a customer-centric way and react to feedback and changes in projects.
Doing it right means using an agile approach to prioritize tasks according to their importance to the customer, to have quickly visible results through regular coordination, and thus to be able to react to changes at any time. The agile way of working is modeled on Scrum, but adapted to the development of hardware. Intensive team communication and customer collaboration characterize the agile way of working.
In this 2-day training you will learn new approaches and methods to solve problems in your innovation process. Methods such as Design Thinking, Customer Journey, creativity methods and Scrum will be presented and the meaningful combination of methods will be tried out together in the seminar.
