Innovation

…. where each new idea is successfully exploited

Get Started

The Innovation School aims to help individuals and organizations adopt and develop the critical processes and behaviours required to be a successful innovator.  The school bases much of its work on empirical research into successfully innovative organizations.  It translates its findings into learning programmes focused on:

  • Transforming business processes to create higher levels of effectiveness
  • Underpinning continuous improvement programmes
  • Solving problems effectively and efficiently
  • Developing tacit innovation behaviours in individuals and embedded innovation cultures in organizations

Focussing your development activities

 

  • Use the Innovation Behaviour Diagnostic tool to identify your individual level of innovation expertise
  • Use the On-line Coach to identify your personal learning and development requirements and receive a personally tailored study programme
  • Use the On-line Feedback Assistant to convert appraisal or 360° feedback in to a personally tailored study programme

Innovation Fundamentals +

Innovation Fundamentals

This is a self-managed self-study process where you are wholly responsible for what you learn and to what standards.

There are no formal entry requirements but previous practical experience of working with innovation and creativity as performance improvement processes at supervisory level or above is helpful.

You study at your own speed following a structured learning pathway whenever it is convenient for you.  Access licences are available for either 4 months or 12 months.  You can also upgrade to 12 months at any time before your 4 month licence expires for the same cost of a 4 month licence.

Self-Development + Diagnostics +

Diagnostic Tool + Self-Development

NOTE:  The innovation behaviour diagnostic tool and associated development programmes are currently being revised and updated.  They will be released shortly and an announcement will be made in the News/Blog pages.

 

To begin the process you complete a detailed on-line questionnaire about how you and your organization behave when addressing problems or changes.  Your responses are analysed and you receive a detailed report on your level of innovation expertise and your personal effectiveness.  The report also provides extensive and detailed recommendations on what you can change in order to improve your innovation success.

Once you have received your feedback report you can continue your self-development by enrolling with the Innovation School and using the online diagnosis and feedback tool to generate a personally tailored learning and development programme for you to follow.  You will also be able to utilise the Personal Development Planning tool and the Reflective Learning Journal to evidence your development.

You study at your own speed whenever it is convenient for you.  Access licences for the additional learning resources are available for either 4 months or 12 months.  You can also upgrade to 12 months at any time before your 4 month licence expires for the same cost of a 4 month licence.  Because you have opted for the diagnostic tool as the starting point for your self-development, you are entitled to a discount of 20% on your first year access licence fees.

Mentored Self-Development + Diagnostics

NOTE:  The innovation behaviour diagnostic tool and associated development programmes are currently being revised and updated.  They will be released shortly and an announcement will be made in the News/Blog pages.

The basic process for the Mentored Development Programme is the same as the Self-Development Programme except that your feedback report is not just provided for you to read, assimilate and act on. In addition, you will receive a minimum one hour feedback discussion and mentoring session based on the findings in your report. The role of the mentor is to help with your reading, interpretation and assimilation of the report so that you secure the maximum benefit from the information you provided and the tool analysed, and then to help with planning your personal development.

The output of this process will be a personal development plan focused on improving your personal sales performance.

In addition you have the option of completing your self-development by enrolling with the Institute, and using the online diagnosis and feedback tool to generate a personally tailored learning and development programme for you to follow. You will also be able to utilise the Personal Development Planning tool and the Reflective Learning Journal to evidence your development.

You study at your own speed whenever it is convenient for you. Access licences for the additional learning resources are available for either 4 months or 12 months. You can also upgrade to 12 months at any time before your 4 month licence expires for the same cost of a 4 month licence. There is an additional fee for working with a personal mentor. Because you have opted for the diagnostic tool as the starting point for your self-development, you are entitled to a discount of 20% on your first year access licence fees.
