About this Workshop

We will learn about how to think strategically as project managers and how to better lead our teams to make better choices when they plan and execute projects.

Workshop Synopsis

  • In this workshop, we will explore the quantum shifts occurring in business due to disruption and the advent of new Innovation Lifecycles and how it relates to planning and executing projects in all the innovation phases, especially from ideation to incubation to scaling.
  • We will explore why traditional project management methods are insufficient to handle both the requirements for speed, creativity, failures and the impacts on managing an innovation portfolio.
  • We will review the root causes of many current Corporate Innovation Lab failures and discuss the leadership implications required to overcome serious process and cultural constraints to plan and execute innovation projects.
  • Designed around group interactions, we’ll work together to solve the common challenges that face all of us both as innovators and project managers in Thailand.
