We push continuous innovation within your company by personally delivering this 16 hour courseware, after which the group is divided up into teams that need to come up with a business idea for their particular company – either expanding their services to increase client revenue, expanding their markets and adding new clients, or streamlining their business operations to save time. money and resources. Each team is required to create a pitch, SWOT analysis, execution plan and budget.
We then essentially perform a “Shark Tank” where all C-Level employees or other high level stakeholders evaluated their presentations and determined whether or not to fund them.
If they are funded, these team members become their own internal startup. As chief mentors for all internal startups for your company, testing several business models for expanding services and markets, we meet with each founder team once a week, go over their execution plans, review milestone achievements, and revenue statements. We then report to the stakeholders each week on where each team is and what our recommendations are for next steps.
We also offer an innovation program where every idea, large or small, goes through a formalized evaluation program. Having a formalized program enables anyone in the company, regardless of title, to suggest ideas which could completely disrupt the way you do business. It is also a gateway for getting your employees into thinking like innovators, even if they are not yet ready for a long Leadership Development Program. Approved projects give the idea submitter a “seat at the table” through the evaluation, funding and execution planning. We provide a downloadable PDF of the process plan free of charge.
