Innovation Team Assembly Training

Attract, hire and develop innovation dream team members

Building Amazing Dream Teams

What you need to know before you go

Before you hire an innovation team, the corporation needs a clear mandate for innovation. Without a clear vision, goals, and knowing who they innovate for, success is next to impossible. Initiating any business transformation, moving into new industry segments or replacing dying segments with innovative solutions, building new business models or anything of that order means a multi-million or billion shift. Innovation teams responsible for such a shift need to be extraordinary talents.

Innovation means changing what exists. Disruption means breaking all rules. Creating a breakthrough innovation and bringing it successfully to market requires a team with unique cognitive abilities.

Innovation teams also need a different skill set for sales and marketing. The early customers who are buying innovative products are profoundly different from those who prefer tried and tested solutions. The same is true for innovation marketing.

In this two-day Innovation Team Assembly Training, you will learn what the ideal profile of innovation team members is, where to find them, and how they fit into a modern corporate structure without jeopardizing their creativity.
