Create the Future – Functional Innovation Methodology

A Systematic approach to accelerate profitable and implementable ideas in your organization


10th -11th Dec 2020 (11am daily)

A recent survey, CEO’s across the globe professed a focus on profitable growth backed by product, process and business model innovation. Organizations of today need to be driven by a win-at-all-cost pursuit of revenue enhancement and cost optimization, and have a longer-term focus on capacity building and developing strong culture around innovation and engagement.

Almost without exception, all high-performance organizations across industries and geographies have emerged and grown on the back of innovative ideas generated from within.  Borrowing from competition to do the thinking for you is rarely successful as a long-term business strategy. But, in a recent study by Innomantra, less than 20% of the participants stated that they have the knowledge of techniques to generate ideas systematically.


Why is this the case? 

In our experience, one of the fundamental reason for this knowledge gap is that most organizations don’t believe that idea generation can be managed effectively as a management process. But, this can be changed.

Join us to experience how your organization can transform the innovation skills of your people and enable them to innovate effectively at the workplace.
