Learn It (Innovation Workshops and Training)

Kuczmarski Innovation’s workshops and on-site training seminars will help senior management understand the basic tenets, process, and mindset of innovation to effectively generate ideas for new product and service development.

Customized Workshops

We offer a series of highly tailored workshops designed to kick-start the innovation process, give you the right tools to instill a culture of innovation, and create the appropriate roadmap toward launching new, revenue-generating products or services for your customers.

Our most common workshop formats are as follows:

Creating An Innovation Mindset (1-Day) — For Senior Cross-Functional Managers

This interactive, daylong seminar will focus on innovation best practices and craft a common definition for innovation at your company. We’ll create a framework for developing an innovation strategy and discuss customer-centric approaches to new product or service development for your organization.

By the end of the program, your managers will have a consistent vocabulary and understanding with which to address innovation as well as the strategies for enhancing the innovation process and supporting an innovation culture.

Strategic Growth Planning (2 Days) – For Senior Executives

Our two-day Strategic Growth Planning workshop focuses on growth potential through innovation. KI, along with senior management teams, will identify new growth opportunities that satisfy financial and strategic goals. We’ll then craft an innovation strategy and an approach for validating those potential opportunities. The strategy and research will allow us to help your organization ultimately identify the process, organization structure, resources, and rewards needed to support the growth options.

Innovation Immersion (2 Days) — For Innovation Project Teams

A two-day, hands-on workshop that dives into our 7-Step Innovation Process, which breaks down the innovation path from initial conception (“Creating the Game Plan and Portfolio”) through executed completion (“Launch Into Market”), all while highlighting crucial customer touch points along the way.

We’ll also develop a specific 90-Day Work Plan for Innovation Success that includes “How-To’s” for jumpstarting the innovation process, techniques for securing resources and senior management support, and methods for leveraging cross-functional inputs. Our ultimate goal is to leave you with the practical skills, templates, and next steps for executing the innovation process and guidelines for developing a timeline, work plan, and budget for your innovation initiatives.
