  3. How do I manage innovation systematically? (tools/framework)
  4. How do I integrate innovation in day-to-day work? (tips)

Participant profile:

The workshop is ideal for following roles: Senior manager / Account manager / Product Manager / Innovation Manager / Technology specialist / Product Architect / CXO. The participant would be at least as much interested in enabling innovation in a team as (s)he would interested in innovating herself/himself. It two or more participants join from an organization, they would get an opportunity to work as a team in action planning.

How is this workshop different from Design Thinking workshop?

Design Thinking workshop focuses on the question "How do I innovate using Design Thinking methodology?" Emapthy is emphasized in DT and participants do two field trips (go on the road) to interview people. "8 steps to innovation excellence" workshop gives equal if not more importance to the question: How do I enable / manage innovation? And it looks at ways of building and sustaining idea pipeline, improving idea velocity and enhancing batting average (business impact). Like DT, it does emphasize experimentation and rapid iteration. However, it doesn't emphasize empathy.
