Stop Inventing Cool Sh*t Your Customer Doesn’t Want!
Innovation is one of the most important endeavours of modern times, yet 95% of innovations fail*. Why is that?
Because too many organisations still waste their time inventing solutions for non-existent customer needs!
In other words, teams fall into the trap of ‘let’s make some really cool shit’ but this jumping-to-the-solution mentality, so prevalent in the corporate and start-up world, means teams are too often skipping the ‘front end’ of the innovation process.
In this interactive and experiential talk, Nathan Baird, author of Innovator’s Playbook¸ Adjunct Program Director - Design Thinking & Experimentation at UNSW, Founder of Methodry, and former Partner of Design Thinking at KPMG, argues that taking a Design Thinking and Experimentation approach to innovation and business is the key to a faster, smoother and more successful innovation journey.
Join us online on 10 May as Nathan shares his 20+ years of experience practicing, leading, and training a customer-centric innovation approach based on hundreds of innovation projects across multiple industries and continents.
