HOW TO ORGANIZE INNOVATION IN YOUR BUSINESS
A fast-paced, 1-day program for established companies in the maritime, offshore and port industries.
Most maritime, offshore and port-related companies innovate constantly. They are always on the lookout for new technological and operational solutions, which often also have a sustainability or digitalisation component. At the same time, many companies struggle to integrate ‘innovation’ into the structure of their organisation.
As an established player in the maritime sector, it’s essential for your business to be able to stay on top of market developments and take steps to innovate structurally. So, you’re looking to collaborate with or invest in start-ups or scale-ups, i.e. small, highly specialized companies with solutions that fit with your portfolio and can help your company grow.
If you are looking for ways to make this happen, then Innovator in a Day is ideal for you.
IS YOUR BUSINESS STRUGGLING WITH ANY OF THE FOLLOWING CHALLENGES?
Working with start-ups or scale ups
It may sound easy, but only 1 out of every 3 collaborations between a starting and an established company is successful. We teach you the do’s and don’ts for a fruitful partnership.
Setting up your innovation strategy is great, but you could use some guidance.
Missing internal structures
Not every company has the necessary internal structures to take a new product from concept to execution or indeed how to organize innovation. For ‘open innovation’ (i.e. partnering with external partners), you need to set up a responsive internal structure.
No landing point
You have decided to work with a start-up or scale-up or you’re developing a groundbreaking product yourself. You have lots of ideas and even some initial proof and now it’s time to implement this product or method into your business processes. And now you’re stuck. Who is responsible? Who is willing to adopt the innovation? Who will take the risk of possible failure? How will you organize internal acceptance and further development?
In short, if you are a shipowner, technical supplier, shipyard, port authority, terminal operator or maritime service provider, and struggling to get going with innovation or go to the next level, then PortXL can get you up to speed – in just one day.
