Our latest Webinar on Values-Based Innovation Management: Concepts, Methods and Applications (by Prof. Dr. Henning Breuer & Prof. Dr. Florian Lüdeke-Freund) is now online.
The Webinar introduces the basic concepts, exemplary methods and practical applications of values-based innovation management. We show why innovation cannot be sufficiently understood and appropriately managed without addressing different stakeholder values. We explain the heuristic, directive and integrative function of values, and demonstrate their potential to drive innovation on different management levels. Through three recent consulting projects we illustrate applied methods to work with values on different management level:
– How to apply ethnographic research on customer values to frame and conduct ideation (operative management example from the digital economy).
– How to model sustainability-oriented business based on a review of stakeholder values (strategic management example from workshops in the energy sector).
– How to trigger innovation through redefining business vision, mission and purpose based on employee values (normative management example from the cleaning service industry).
Participants are invited to contribute their own experiences and examples and to propose new challenges that might be addressed with a values-based approach.
