ViVet Innovation Workshop Series: Turning ideas into Innovation

About this event

A series of free innovative training sessions providing veterinary surgeons and veterinary nurses the tools needed to turn ideas into innovations.

Taking place throughout September 2021, the interactive workshops will cover different stages of the innovation process, including how to find a target audience, how to successfully test an idea and then how to roll out an idea after the testing stage. As well as the workshop content, participants will also have access to a virtual collaboration platform, workshop tools and innovation templates to use after the sessions have finished.

The topics covered in each session are:

Workshop One – 7 September: This workshop will cover how to approach an idea as a team, how to outline a target audience and map out the stakeholders who could influence and support your idea

Workshop Two – 14 September: During this workshop, participants will learn how to use tools to work out what assumptions need testing on an idea, how to create a prototype and how to design and run experiments on an idea

Workshop Three – 28 September: In the final workshop, participants will review their tests, write a press release for the launch of their innovation and put an action plan together so the idea can be progressed after the workshops have ended.

Throughout the workshops, each group taking part in the programme will also have access to a 30-minute coaching session with an experienced innovation coach.

Approach

Three virtual workshops over 3 weeks, using proven tools that to guide delegates to the expected outcomes. The first workshop aligns the team, builds common understanding of the target user and the key stakeholders. Workshop two seeks to identify assumptions and how to test them. In between workshops 2 and 3, the team will run an experiment. In workshop three, the experiment is reviewed, direction determined and a high-level sharing of the idea is performed. The workshop ends with action planning to ensure the teams are clear on their next steps.

Each team will also have access to one 30-minute coaching session with an experienced innovation coach that can be used at any time during the engagement.
