STARTINNO's ENTERPRISE Academy IS for CORPORATES and LargeR Organisations TO Manage change and innovate

The ultimate corporate getaway

Powered by StartupAcademy.org

Big businesses often struggle to innovate because they are focused on productivity and operational efficiency. When enterprises do embark on programs to help them innovate and grow they often fail to produce measurable outcomes. Our Enterprise Program has therefore grown out of a mixture of practical experience in change management, incubating/accelerating startups using lean methodologies and leading edge technology toolsets developed through academic research. This helps big companies not only innovate but, by being measurable, also reintegrate the structures and insights necessary to grow back to their organisation. In fact due to our work with startups and research, we developed Lean toolsets specifically for corporates wanting to learn how to inject startup DNA back across their organisation. Instilling an more innovative cultural mindset not only solves immediate innovation problems but also, in the long term, improves both team and organisational performance to help protect against future disruption.

DISRUPTION IS EVERYWHERE

We live in an era of technology, connectivity that brings change new opportunities at an increasing rate. It only takes a group of creatively destructive twentysomethings to focus their attention on say, customer dissatisfaction, and established brands and in some cases institutions come tumbling down. Corporates focus on stability of profits making them risk averse which is the exact opposite of the entrepreneur who seeks new opportunity. Iconic household brands such as Kodak, Nokia and Blockbuster have all collapsed and been replaced by names names like Uber, AirBnB and of GoPro. 

Remember your youth

They say "youth is wasted on the young". You were once a startup, ran lean, challenged everything, removed the obstacles. Now its all about shareholders, stakeholders, CAPEX, OPEX and scaling through spreadsheets. We're not saying it's unimportant but it's hardly the stuff of invention, creativity and innovation. Startups take more chances, many of them fail, and those that succeed usually have failed in the past - just look at Apple today.  

Entrepreneurial mindset

We know big companies, we've worked for them and inside them, but the reason why we're no longer there is that we understand that corporates are much more conservative than startups. The ability to be nimble, adapt quickly and outrun the competition--often by cannibalising their own products--is incredibly challenging for most corporates. Innovation projects are difficult to launch and inevitably fail. Typically this is due to either team resources being redirected to fill a fall in productivity, or lack the commitment to see ideas reach full commercialisation.

Benefits

The Enterprise Innovation program has been designed using lean startup models for corporate teams particularly at the stages of discovery, incubation and acceleration. We then measure and benchmark teams who are often different departments or industry groups, and visually represent changes in attitudes and how teams approach innovation problems they are trying to solve. We use qualified coaches who provide frameworks to assist corporate teams in functioning more productively. During the Enterprise Innovation program we also employ visualisation metrics to assess cohesive relationships, how these teams perform, and in which particular areas. This means we are able to truly understand tangibly what is important: what stages produced the highest performance and what structures were needed for both success and cohesive relationships to form. The additional benefits of the insights from the Enterprise Program allows our clients to integrated back into their businesses, providing structures for future innovation projects. Unlike other team building programs, Demetics™ puts entrepreneurship back into your business by measuring how teams focus on what's important and coaching them to understand what's not. 

 

We’ve worked with [the team] over the past year on our Web CMS platform and found their knowledge, expertise and flexibility to be of huge value despite the business challenges over the past year.
