1 Innovation Leadership Training Day One February 5, 2009

2 Welcome Welcome to our innovation training program Over the next few weeks we’ll investigate a number of innovation tools and techniques Be sure to meet your neighbors as we hope to build an internal innovation network

3 What We Want to Accomplish

4 Goals for this section Our goal over the course – Provide an introduction to the thinking, tools and techniques for innovation – Build a network of innovators using the same approach and language – Position you to participate in innovation activities and to act as a sponsor for innovation in your businesses

5 Key Points Innovation must be presented as a sustaining capability – not as a discrete project – There’s simply too much change and risk involved to define it for the short term The management team must walk the talk – actively supporting innovation – Innovation isn’t free and isn’t cheap. Your active support and patience will reap benefits Innovation is a journey, not a destination

6 Introductions OVO is an innovation consulting and software development firm, focused primarily on development of sustainable, repeatable innovation processes I’m Jeffrey Phillips, a senior consultant with OVO and I’ll be leading some of the training during this training program

9 Approach This program is divided into five sections Each section has pre-work, classroom presentation and discussion, and recommended follow-up reading There are a number of exercises planned throughout the day to reinforce the presentations We will cover a wide variety of topics, tools and techniques in innovation – Our goal is to help you think differently when an innovation opportunity presents itself

13 Pre-work and Follow up We recognize that you are very busy, but you will gain much more by doing any pre-work before you attend, and by considering the recommended follow up reading or activities Most of the follow up work is additional readings from industry experts and will extend what we do in class

14 Putting the learning into practice If you don’t have an active innovation program or an idea in mind, consider starting an innovation project in conjunction with this training Otherwise, please try to exercise these skills by participating in an innovation program or getting involved in an enterprise innovation activity as soon as possible.
