Welcome everyone to the first Oracle Brisbane meetup of 2019. Joeri Timmermans from BIGJUMP (https://www.bigjump.com.au/) reached out to me with this unique opportunity. We have Elijah Eilert - Lean Startup Coach in Brisbane bringing his knowledge about Innovation Accounting.

Arrivals for the event opens from 1200 with session starting at 1230 and closing at 1400. Light lunch will be provided.

Traditional accounting methods are used to measure, monitor and manage innovation. However, it is also considered as a major innovation blocker.

PwC's study from November 2018 highlights: ‘there is no statistically significant relationship between how much a company spends on its innovation efforts and its sustained financial performance (Global Innovation 1000 study, www.digitalpulse.pwc.com.au/report-global-innovation-1000-study).’

The job of Innovation Accounting is to change just that, it maximises the bets an organisation can place to create new sustainable business models. It demands meaningful metrics to monitor progress, holds intrapreneurs accountable and gives them the necessary freedom and agility to succeed.

Innovations succeeds when all critical unknowns (known unknowns in the form of assumptions and unknown unknowns) are removed from a project. Progress means to do just that, using the minimum amount of resources. From an Innovation Accounting perspective, unknowns are the innovation debt (risk).

About Elijah - Lean Startup Coach (currently based in Melbourne/Adelaide)
Elijah Eilert grew up in Germany and has worked in various industries across six countries, now calling Australia home.

His passion for an evidence-based approach to entrepreneurship evolved from the frustration of applying traditional business planning and project management to his first Startup - which he co-founded in China in 2007.

Elijah has worked with large organisations such as Microsoft, research institutes like Fraunhofer and federal government bodies overseas. The vision and scientific approach that Lean Startup and subsequently Lean Innovation contributes to innovation is where his interest and passion lies.

Today, Elijah coaches startups and innovation teams and assists large organisations in managing their innovation efforts. Solving the problems of innovation management to him is just as satisfying as the end result of a successful project - happy customers.

This event is supported by Lean Startup Coach & BIGJUMP.
