What we'll do
We are happy to announce a special Meetup event in partnership with the international conference INNOV8RS that comes to Sydney for the first time (more about INNOV8RS and a 50% discount code at the end of this event description).
As part of their local community engagement, INNOV8RS brings a highly acclaimed guest speaker and some of their international attendees that are interested to meet local professionals to our meetup.
Our event partner ACS NSW has kindly offered to host this event in their stunning event space (sunset view to the Blue Mountains if you arrive before 6 pm!) and to provide some food and drinks for our traditional networking session after the interactive talk.
Successful Innovation by co-creation
Innovation is crucial for any organisation to survive. More and more companies start to engage their employees all over their organisation to innovate. This boosts creativity and helps generate an incredible amount of innovative ideas. But they still face the challenge of true co-creation with multi-disciplinary teams.
Many innovators tend to focus on their own field and rely on their own experience.
• How can you make sure they involve all concerned groups (customers and/or other departments) in the design and development of the solution?
• How to handle business cases with new initiatives where future outcome is not benchmarked yet?
• How to design your organisation to foster co-creation?
Our speakers Philippe and Tarra will try to answer those questions and provide you with easy tips during a cafe-style open discussion. Join the conversation, bring your current challenges or concerns to question them and they will help you work out a path for your situation.
5.45 pm: Doors open, arrival chats
6.15 pm: Successful Innovation by co-creation
7.30 pm: Networking drinks & food
8.30 pm: Event closes
