Innovation in perspective
50 years of pioneering innovation
Since 1969 we have pioneered the product innovation business. How did the innovation landscape change? What did we learn from the past and what are the trends towards a better future?
New value creation platforms
Let’s explore a generic blue print for future proof products and services. Products of the ’60s were very much about hardware design for new industrial production processes. What will future products look like? How do you make your propositions future proof?
1.1 The drivers of value creation: 50 years of research
1.2 The acceleration of Artificial Intelligence
1.3 The evolution of the bicycle industry 50 years after Eddy Merckx’ victory
Organizing innovation in an increasing complex world
Find the building blocks for your future innovation factory. A few decades ago breakthrough innovation came from highly confidential corporate labs and rigid organizations. Today start-ups are setting the new standards and agile seems to be the way to do.
2.1 How to shape your innovation ecosystem to create impact in your organization?
2.2 Is the house of quality still a valid model to manage innovation?
2.3 Behind the waterfall methodology
Changing the entrepreneurial landscape
What can we learn from Silicon Valley to start your own future start-up? San Francisco was the capital of the late sixties hippie movement. The following decades Silicon Valley became the world’s largest hot spot for technology, innovation and start-ups.
3.1 Is the start-up way of working really different than the corporate one?
3.2 The era of pretotyping has arrived
3.3 Building an innovation culture: steering individual and team behavior
The impact of the government on innovation
Explore how governments can accelerate innovation to the best of society. The club of Rome questioned our volume driven industrial model 50 years ago, and pushed towards a more sustainable vision. Critics of today pinpoint the potential impact of new technologies and the need for differentiated local actions.
4.1 The book ‘Building Tomorrow’ as handbook for governments
4.2 Landing on the moon: the impact and future opportunities
4.3 The government as launching customer: a great opportunity for companies
How new are new technologies?
New technologies and innovation have been driven by science since the ’60s. The latest technologies of today are often a result of connecting science domains. This requires another approach on technology forecasting, scouting and transfer. Learn more about this fresh perspective based on 4 technology domains.
5.1 The first humanoid robot: Wabot-1
5.2 Advanced human interfaces: the underestimated enabler for innovation
5.3 Geospatial technologies: the evolution and impact on our daily life
5.4 Software language over the last 50 years: what will be next?
Friday the 18th of October. You’re welcome at 9h. Let’s wrap-up at 16h.
