Meet other innovation-focused leaders of International Organizations for an in-person, hands-on experience, where you work in cross-functional and cross-organizational teams about a variety of innovation methodologies and how to apply them. The training engages leaders from various organizations in innovation work, and provides them with processes and tools to assess the value-adding potential and the challenges of innovation-driven agencies and organizations.
In addition to gaining additional skills, the Training also lets you be part of an expending movement of collaborators from across the International Organizations with the goal of enabling the environment for innovation.
The Innovation Movement Workshops were started as a collaboration and co-created with the Chiefs of Learning and HR from UNHCR, ILO, UNOG, and ITU. After five successful cohorts since 2020, the program is open to all organizations interested in developing an innovation mindset and becoming part of a growing network of innovation champions.
The objective of the training is two-fold. First, on the content-level, it seeks to engage senior leaders (those managing teams) in innovation work and provide them with processes and tools to critically assess the value-adding potential and the challenges of innovation-driven organizations and agencies. Second, on the interpersonal level, to create a movement of collaborators from across the International Organizations with the aim of enabling the environment for innovation.
The workshops will take the innovation journey as a continuous iterative process that requires strategy, structures, and initiatives to change the processes, mindsets, and culture of the organizations. Over two full days of interactive workshops, we will introduce you to the high-level strategy and reasoning for innovation, move on to the processes and specific innovation methodologies necessary for mindset changes, and facilitate the development of the individual initiatives in cross-organizational teams. After these two days, there will be time to reflect on the learned material and to create your pitch with your project team, which will be presented during the final half-day session
