Innovation Vouchers – Business Innovation Workshop 2 - Strategy and Leadership for Innovation


Innovation Vouchers – Business Innovation Workshop 2 - Strategy and Leadership for Innovation
16 May 2017
09:30 - 17:00

The tools used as part of the Business Innovation Workshops are business-oriented and provide a simple-to-understand language that SME leaders of any size can understand and use.  Moreover, the tools used in the Business Innovation Workshops will allow participant SME owner/managers to target specific organisational development that will drive their innovation strategies and objectives.

The Workshops will help participant SME leaders identify, understand and assess essential strategic and cultural competences, as well as organising mechanisms needed to effect innovation in their organisation. Participants will be given the opportunity to consider their own funding strategies and how best to pursue commercial finance in the future.  In short the Business Innovation Workshops will give you initial tools from which to work directly on your business. Each Workshop is also designed so that the combination of all three gives greater meaning and context for your business.

Strategy and Leadership for Innovation

This workshop is designed to help SMEs build their strategic leadership capacity and enhance the cultural and structural effectiveness of their organisation for innovation. The workshop is designed around 3 pillars:
