Learn how to Accelerate Innovation with Human Connections !

Human connections makes things grow. Do you have it ?

In our newly conducted in-depth interviews with top performing clients around the world on how they create value for their businesses, we found that a common denominator was their skills in establishing “human connections”. In this workshop, we want to co-create an innovation experience together with our participants, inspired by the way our most successful customers create value for their companies.

In our 2.5 hour session, we will start with confessions and stories from people experienced in how human connections influence the innovation performance. Using design principles for human connections, we then explore the areas where human connections occur with clients, partners, co-designers, and how technology and agility makes us accelerate change.

Finally, we share and analyze our own “human connection” actions that we in this network experience in our everyday life. The aim is to build our own experience of how human insights influence the opportunity to innovate with excellence, so that we can continue our work, more experienced, every day!
