Are research and innovation important strategic drivers in your company?
Want to get even more innovation from your research and development?
This intensive Workshop gives you a fresh view on how to make your research and
development more efficient, faster and customer focussed. The training is filled with
real life examples and exercises on how to:
.. eliminate waste from day to day processes
.. improve the innovative strength
.. create learning directed management
.. shape a culture of continuous improvement.
The Workshop is a mix of theoretic foundation and practical hands on interaction.
Innovation Excellence is a unique application of leankaizen methodologies and
personal coaching. It frees up capacity for innovative research, fosters ownership and
significantly enhances the output of your research and innovation teams. It has the goal
to improve current work processes in research and development but also life cycle
management to increase efficiency. Together with ICH Q8 elements like Quality by
Design, Innovation Excellence has to be seen as an overarching paradigm and an interdisciplinary approach across the product development lifecycle. It also systematically
emphasises enhanced product throughout the product lifecycle.
Applying a management style that has focus on the process of learning, the art of continuous and scientific research can create a physical as well as a social environment
where innovation can flourish.
The application of continuous improvement tools presented in this Workshop will
help gaining the right knowledge.
