Innovation to the Core

A blueprint for transforming the way your company innovates.

Making Innovation Happen!

Innovation is now recognized globally as the core driver of growth, strategic renewal, and long-term competitiveness. It’s literally your company’s only hope for creating new wealth and sustaining business success. But how do you actually make innovation happen? In this keynote presentation, Rowan Gibson looks inside the mind of the innovator to reveal the four key mental perspectives behind all game-changing ideas:

1. CHALLENGING ORTHODOXIES – questioning deeply-held beliefs and conventional assumptions inside a company or an industry
2. HARNESSING TRENDS – using the power of discontinuous change to substantially alter the rules of the game and to drive industry disruption
3. LEVERAGING RESOURCES – repurposing and recombining core competencies and strategic assets in order to stretch into new growth opportunities
4. UNDERSTANDING NEEDS – learning to live inside the customer’s skin, identifying unmet needs and designing solutions from the customer backward

Based on his latest book “The Four Lenses of Innovation: A Power Tool for Creative Thinking,” Rowan shows that by deliberately and systematically using these four proven perspectives, literally anyone can unlock their ability to innovate. In a keynote that is tailored to your own strategic issues, Rowan will provide you with a cutting-edge “Power Tool for Creative Thinking” that you and your people can use to systematically generate breakthrough opportunities for profitable growth.

The Four Lenses of Innovation

This is where the innovation rhetoric becomes reality. In his breakout sessions with The Four Lenses of Innovation™, Rowan Gibson gives you the opportunity to start working with one of the world’s most powerful tools for systematic idea generation. Usually following his keynotes, Rowan facilitates these exciting sessions using a set of proven techniques to stretch your thinking along new lines and produce a portfolio of new, insight-based opportunities for driving growth and renewal. In an inspiring atmosphere, your people will get a chance to radically rethink your products, services, processes, markets, strategies – and even your business model itself – to create new value for your customers. These practical breakout sessions include Rowan’s special handbook of exercises and are specially tailored to your own strategic issues. They engage all participants in the generation of new strategic insights and growth opportunities for your company, teaching them a methodology they can already start using on Monday morning to address their own business challenges. The breakout sessions can be customized to meet your own requirements and usually require 2 – 3 hours.
