The Innovation Manager Crash Course





June 22, 2018



9:00 AM - 5:00 PM


Collective Campus

Level 1, 20 Queen St



Innovation without the fluff. 

Use time-tested innovation strategies to spark business growth and create a competitive advantage.

  • Discover Revenue Opportunities
    New technologies are disrupting marketplaces while creating new angles for growth. Rather than risk getting disrupted, you have the opportunity to leapfrog over your competitors.
  • Superior Customer Experience
    Within a saturated marketplace, quality products and pricing strategies are no longer enough. That is where superior customer experience becomes your competitive advantage.
  • Drive A Culture of Innovation
    Attract the best talent by growing your reputation as an innovative company. Up-skilling them to thrive in the 21st century increases job satisfaction, retention and company- wide productivity.   

Industries are getting disrupted, yours included.

New technologies set the stage for new revenue opportunities and competitors. The fight for market share and top talent is more intense than ever.

Management feels the urgency and has put you in charge.

You set off looking for solutions, but it quickly gets overwhelming:  

  • You come across “best practice” articles on corporate innovation. Unfortunately, it’s loaded with theoretical fluff that holds little practical value. You need more than just hope. You need a process for innovation.  
  • You discover stories of successful companies who launched innovation labs. These projects looked promising at the start but failed to live up to the hype. You want to avoid this scenario at all cost.
  • If “Innovation” is not in your job title, you are probably feeling stretched - having to run new initiatives on top of your day to day responsibilities.
  • There are multiple decisions to make such as “Should I start with a hackathon, workshop or accelerator?” and “How do I best gain buy-in from key stakeholders, especially those who are resisting change?”
  • You might even look to external consultants for help. However, you aren’t exactly sure if they can deliver. This is critical given that your company’s budget and your career reputation is on the line.

After coaching 200+ Innovation Managers, we have witnessed what works and what doesn’t.

This has led us to launch our flagship course “The Innovation Manager Crash Course.” We designed it to help corporate innovators (like yourself) cut their learning curve.

In this course, you will discover how to:

  • Pick the right innovation programs that deliver quick wins for your organisation. Instead of relying on guesswork.
  • Overcome initial skepticism from key decision makers. You will learn how to create a compelling case for innovation.
  • Execute on idea contests, hackathons, and prototyping sessions. Essential if you aim to hit the ground running.
  • Use the right metrics to measure the success of your programs. This attracts career recognition and further support from management.

Kevin Young, Innovation Manager

Steve and the team at Collective Campus facilitated and structured a hackathon event for us with great results. Collective Campus provided us with new and different experimentation tools and techniques, which enabled us to progress quickly on all our ideas.

Oliver Hoy, INNOVATION Manager

"The lean startup bootcamp is a great way for employees to learn the fundamentals of entrepreneurship, life in a startup and how to diverge from their normal way of thinking. Highly recommended."
