Vicsport’s Forward Thinking Series continues on 19 March with a practical workshop that will improve your capability to be innovative, and generate game-changing ideas simply and quickly.
At the ‘Innovation in Action: Generating Ideas Simply and Quickly’ workshop you will:
- Discover how top innovators approach problem solving
- Learn how you can apply cutting edge and easy to use design principles and methodologies to generate innovative ideas for community sport products, services and programs
- Participate in a practical ‘rapid prototyping’ team challenge to design innovative community sport membership models simply and quickly
In a rapidly evolving community sport landscape, the ability to analyse the market, understand key trends and develop responsive programs, products and services is of critical importance. For organisations looking to design and deliver innovative offerings to get more people active through sport, the right approach is essential.
What will happen?
At the Innovation in Action workshop, you will be introduced to the tools and techniques leading innovators use. You will learn the approach that helps them to solve tough problems, and get to practically apply these methods on the day to design and develop new initiatives.
Participants will learn the principles and practices of human-centred design and the Lean Startup methodology to generate innovative ideas. Ideas that will engage your members, program participants, staff, volunteers and community - and that they want to tell their friends and family about.
Participants will be taken through a dynamic process to prototype innovative community sport membership models, to show you how you can design and test new ideas simply and quickly.
This session will help participants better understand their market and take away practical tools and processes to generate forward thinking ideas with their team.
Who should attend?
This event will be of value to strategic leaders and program managers of sport organisations wanting to develop new products and programs aimed at getting more people active through sport.
The Innovation in Action workshop: Generating Ideas Simply and Quickly workshop runs from 8:30am – 12:30pm on 19 March at Abbotsford Convent, just 6km from the Melbourne CBD.
