What is Innovation?
Have you heard about Agile Mindset?
Ever wondered what Lean Start up method means and what the difference between this method and design thinking?
This workshop, led by Hulya Kurt and Tumay Yenli, the owners of InnKick Consulting, will provide a high-level introduction to the different methodologies of Design Thinking, Lean startup and comparisons between both models.
The workshop will cover Agile Mindset and why it is so important to be agile in this dynamic world. We will walk through Business Model canvas in combination with hands-on exercise and get real-life examples of innovative ideas, their reasons for failure and how to avoid the typical traps.
We will cover another vital aspect: how to validate your solution with the end users and what type of trigger questions can be used to ensure that. You will also get a glimpse into pitching your idea/solution in an interactive setting as you would need to win over supporters and potential investors.
