A workshop for company directors designed to provide sufficient understanding of the enterprise innovation process to enable the board to govern the innovation program and support management in innovating effectively. Delivered on-premises. Customized to your organization.


Innovation begins with asking questions. Asking the right questions, from the top down, is the beginning of the governance required for effective enterprise innovation.

► Is our organization innovating effectively?

► Are we innovating at all?

► Are we innovating the right things?

► Are the right stakeholders being involved?

► Are we investing enough in innovation?

► What return are we getting on our innovation investment?

► Are we at risk of disruption? What are we doing to mitigate this?

Are these sorts of questions being asked around your board table? As a director of the company, are you able to answer them? Is management able to answer them? Are you able to give management the support they need to run an effective innovation program?

This workshop will enable directors to ask the right questions, and get the right answers, to effectively govern the organization’s innovation program. You’ll learn how to design an effective innovation strategy, oversee its implementation, and monitor its effectiveness.
