Future Events Overview


Challenge Based Innovation - Co-Hosted with West Midlands Academic Health Science Network


To ensure ideas are relevant to the business so more likely to be implemented, we often run business focussed challenges; but how you identify the area of focus and ‘word’ the challenge can have a big impact on both the quality and quantity of ideas you receive.

During this session we will have the opportunity to discuss:


  • defining the challenge/opportunity
  • engaging people in the definition
  • making idea identification relevant
  • gaining ‘buy in’
  • effectively communicating the challenge
  • skills required
  • Date: - Thursday 13th September

    Time: - 9am to 12pm(lunch will be provided)

    Venue: iCentrum
