Innovation isn’t something that can be done – it’s a verb – it’s a state of being and a continuous act. The act of innovation will, however, result in a constant stream of projects that will need to be delivered.

This webinar will introduce the Innovation Sprint process as a method that you can embed in your business to deliver successful innovation projects. The exploration of the innovation sprint process will focus on how to grow the initial ideas to make them bigger and better, how to form energised and multi-disciplined project groups to champion and drive the innovation forward, and how to gain the backing, resources and funding required to deliver the project and turn your ideas into a commercial reality.
