Indication

Innovation is crucial for sustaining a company’s competitiveness in this age of constant, radical disruption.  Yet, leading corporate innovation initiatives can often be an exercise in frustration.  Novel ideas invariably face resistance from the established corporate order.  Adequately resourcing development activity is also becoming a challenge even for the largest, most pedigreed of corporations.

Consultation

The NUS Innovation Access Programme (IAP) and the designX Lab at Stanford University’s Center for Design Research (CDR) have teamed up to help corporate innovators triage their innovation endeavours.

IAP-CDR will host a limited number of bespoke clinics for Singapore-based corporate innovation teams.  The objective is to help these companies design targeted, evidence-driven innovation strategies, processes and structures that would best leverage the vibrant research and startup ecosystems in and around Singapore.

Prescription

Each corporate team will be engaged individually in a half-day interactive workshop which will cover the following agenda:

  • Review of the company’s innovation goals and roadmap
  • Identification of internal capability & resource gaps
  • Scan of ecosystem to identify relevant external resources and partners
  • Recommendations for optimising the company’s open innovation platform

Reservation

These IAP-CDR innovation clinics are provisioned free of charge, but sessions are limited.  The next series of  clinics is scheduled for November 2018.  Register your interest to participate now:
