Now online: The webinar on the use of remote games to foster innovation by Sune Gudiksen, Henning Breuer and Kiril Ivanov. "Learning and innovation go hand in hand. The arrogance of success is to think that what you did yesterday will be sufficient for tomorrow" (William Pollard, 1828-1893). In the last few weeks, this statement has gained additional importance. The current circumstances caused by the coronavirus pandemic have not only forced numerous businesses to rapidly and effectively adopt a remote mindset, but have also confronted them with accompanying challenges for individuals and teams. How can companies ensure that innovative ideas of its stakeholders can be managed appropriately without face-to-face interaction? How can they rapidly align and constantly renew their portfolio in order to withstand economic pressure during the crisis and in the future? The webinar gives insights into the opportunities and usage of remote games that foster innovation. It provides guidelines on how to drive innovation through remote games in times of crisis. What can you expect to take away from the webinar?
- An understanding of the need to promote innovation even in remote situations to continue successful operation in complex and demanding markets.
- An overview of opportunities to address this need with remote games and other initiatives in order to foster innovation throughout the remote team.
- An introduction to the setup of the games and game elements, as well as the know-how and an exchange of experiences from our business partners.
We delivered an international ethnography with European Jobseekers. Our client is determined to change the careers industry with new online services. We had the chance to closely collaborate with one of their most outstanding teams exploring the job seeking journey in two European countries. Field interviews with 24 job seekers, profile writing, pattern recognition delivered strategic insights how to approach the new markets. We synthesized several relevant issues such as self-management and building up momentum, trading-off ideals against immediate benefits, projecting a big picture strategy and learning to apply different media, and need for tactical support (writing CVs, cover letters and improving interview skills). We are looking forward to continue our cooperation in the new year.
Featuring an introductory video, an initial webinar and further activities and materials coming up, our SIG on values-based and sustainable innovation is up and running. We are inviting innovation managers, entrepreneurs, researchers and consultants to join.
We opened up the International Conference on New Business Models with an introductory note (here the video) and a dive-in to a key topic of present-day’s innovation and entrepreneurship discourse: How can we develop viable businesses based on what we really care about? We respond to this hot issue by presenting the values-based approach to innovation management. Understood as notions of the desirable, values provide a powerful lever for the companies that aspire to do well while doing good. Values can spur innovation in numerous ways, in order to set ambitious visions or to establish a common ground for partnerships, or to understand customer concerns in ways that are more fundamental. Moreover, as we are moving from a single bottom line to a triple bottom line (of planet, people and profit) to measure business performance, and on to 17 Sustainable Development Goals to strive for, we need to recur to our values in order to interpret and to prioritize these global goals into unique business goals. In a fishbowl discussion, two industry leaders will share their experiences with, challenges from, and measures to address values in innovation management and sustainable innovation:
- Roman Meier-Andrae, Divisional Head of Corporate IT & Digitalisation, Member of the Executive Board at TÜV Nord Mobility, an organisation dedicated to making the world safer.
- Philipp Baumann, Head of Product at Ecosia, the search engine that plants trees, and which is managed based on six core values.
