"Value Innovation Works"
Donovan Hall Room G152
8 am - 10 am
A light breakfast will be provided
Everyone agrees that every organization must innovate or stagnate and ultimately cease to exist. The question is how do you successfully innovate? Here, finally is the answer for small and large companies, for not-for-profit and for-profit businesses and for private and public organizations.
Value Innovation Works (VIW) is a business development process that guides a company or entrepreneur from a want, a need, a problem or an idea through to innovation and implementation. It is based on a book written by Richard Lee*. Attend the upcoming introductory presentation to learn about VIW and how it can drive your business to the next level. We will have several real life examples on how this process has changed numerous generic products to ones of tremendous value. We will even show you how we helped turn an ordinary piece of cardboard into a product worth 7 million dollars.
What are your priorities:
- Higher valuation?
- Greater operating efficiencies?
Value Innovation Works (VIW) will give you the process and the tools to refine your strategic plan and to improve your profits.
*The book Value Innovation Works is recommended to better understand the process but not required to attend the workshop. To order from Amazon
