Accelerating Innovation in the Construction Industry: HOW it’s done

30 June, 2016 @ 10:00 am - 5:30 pm UTC+0

One-day seminar for leaders in the construction industry
Is “innovation” merely a new century buzz word or an essential success factor in Construction today?


Innovation capabilities are key

While ‘innovation’ may often be overused, it is undeniable that organisations with robust innovation capabilities will advance more swiftly and more readily to find success in increasingly competitive markets.

Competition and new technologies are accelerating the pace of change in the construction industry. A Google search for “innovation in construction” returns an astonishing 358,000,000 results.

Thinking and acting differently

Against this backdrop, enhancing innovation capabilities will give organisations visibility of new strategic options, improved problem solving skills, more efficient product/service development, better marketing, new business models, etc. Once an organisation can think and act differently, it can also compete more effectively and successfully in their market.

Yet many leaders ask, “HOW can that be done?”

The SIT story – an introduction

Join us on June 30th for a one-day hands-on seminar introducing a proven innovation method that has much to offer our industry.  Systematic Inventive Thinking is a method that helps organisations move from a state of periodically “doing innovation”, to one where the organisation “innovates in what it does”.

SIT is a well published (international Best Seller, Harvard Business Review, etc.) method taught at leading business schools around the world (e.g. London, Ashridge, Manchester, Harvard, Wharton, etc.).  Their approach to innovation is pragmatic and results oriented; over 950 companies around the world have learned to apply SIT, with great effect.

What you’ll learn

The seminar focuses on introducing participants to this proven and effective method of using innovation (SIT) to think and act differently.  Participants will experiment, using real challenges they face in construction today, and see that innovation (SIT) can make a real difference in a wide range of situations.  Finally, we will explore initial steps to make systematic innovation a reality for your company.
