'Is your organisation ready? Do you know what practical steps you need to take?'
Open Innovation is a 'hot topic' that is currently discussed within many organisations but the reality is that few understand what it means and how it can be delivered.
The British Library and Quantum Innovation Centre (QIC) have structured this workshop to help organisations make sense of open innovation and understand how they can assess their readiness to embrace and apply Open Innovation principles. It will be of relevance to any organisation within the private or public sector, regardless of size.
The workshop features and Innovation and Improvement Framework which has been developed by QIC which incorporates and utilises best practice and will enable organisations to gain an insight into their current capacity to innovate.
The Framework will help organisations to address the following questions:
- How do we embrace and deliver innovation?
- How do we pul together all of the many components needed to deliver innovation successfully?
- Where are we now? What needs to be in place?
- Where do we start? What do we need to do? How do we prioritise?
The purpose of the workshop is to:
- Provide a forum for a structured discussion about an organisation's readiness to innovate (using one element of the Innovation & Improvement Framework).
- Share what is happening within delegate's organisations.
- Identify practical steps that can be taken back to your organisation to build an Open Innovation platform.
