This trademark innovation workshop designed by Rubiks Digital is a powerful tool to find real business value from innovation design. The goal is to tackle a growth challenge to create a smart innovation strategy in 7 days.
According to MIT Sloan Management Review research, most companies today focus their efforts on what it would take to disrupt existing markets. This narrows their vision and blinds them to the wealth of nondisruptive, market-creating innovations they could unlock.
In Smart Innovation© Workshop, we are taking a holistic approach to analyse all of the different innovation opportunities available for the company and choose the distinct tactics accordingly.
The workshop is designed for a dedicated innovation team of up to six people and at least one senior manager among them. The workshop takes place off-site and is including a social program.

“Learned to break patterns and routines, shift between regularities and take time off to engage in completely other activities.” Allan
The program will be finalized based on the specific needs and growth opportunities of the customer. Here are some blocks and principles included in the program:
The workshop requires preparation and research from both the client and the consultants. Some of this preparation and opportunity mapping will be done before the workshop and some of it during the workshop.
This includes both a detailed view of the company internal strengths and obstacles as well as external market opportunities and challenges.
Mapping the Innovation Landscape
From sustaining to disruptive, from incremental to radical innovation – during this phase, we will be using the latest innovation modelling methods to map out the innovation landscape in the specific industry.
What is the maturity of the industry and its players? What are the opportunities and capabilities as well as challenges and risks open for the business? What to consider to enable new growth from innovation?
Building the Innovation Strategy
Acknowledging the internal and external opportunities and challenges, what are the possible innovation paths to consider? What are the innovation strategies to enable and how much resources to dedicate for each of those? Should the action steps be immediate or conservative?
From wait-and-see to going all-in with eating-your-own-lunch kind of strategy, there is no bad innovation strategy per se except not having one. Making a conscious strategical choice and understanding the innovation landscape is key to future growth and market leadership.
At least one of our participating consultants has an entrepreneurial background and strong experience in implementing an innovation strategy. We will have a few practical lectures during the workshop around case studies and external experiences based on the needs of the participating team.
During the workshop, each member is actively challenged with a variety of creative exercises and disruptive thinking models. This will ensure that the team is considering every possible scenario and opportunity that might not be obvious in the first place.
About 16 hours of social and self-development programs tied within the program to boost inspiration and creativity when it is highly needed. These can include the practice of mindfulness, yoga, physical exercises, fireside chat, coaching and others.
