Victoria’s Monash University and the Food Innovation Centre are co-hosting this hands-on one-day workshop for small and medium-sized enterprises seeking to expand their businesses through best-practice innovation tools, collaboration and ‘intrapreneurial’ behaviour.
The idea is to help SMEs, including food producers, master the steps they need to develop and commercialise good ideas using best-practice innovation.
The workshop aims to help businesses boost their odds of success for their innovations by:
- engaging with the latest best practice innovation capabilities;
- learning how to ‘co-create, accelerate and de-risk’ innovation; and
- expanding networks with like-minded businesses and connections with inspirational fellow innovators.
Participants will have opportunities to learn current best practice in how to identify, craft and test ideas that have the best chance of succeeding – within their own businesses and in the wider marketplace.
They’ll learn how to become ‘innovation intrapreneurs’ via interactive best-practice modules, delivered by experienced industry practitioners and focusing on:
- market-, consumer- and shopper-led innovation methodologies;
- knowledge-mapping and product-mapping tools;
- design thinking;
- design prototyping and 3-D printing;
- visualisation and ‘virtual stores’; and
- simulated in-store product placement and planograms.
