Where ideas meet reality Scheveningen - NL
Our innovation managers also manage your daily project work schedule for you. They manage those seemingly mundane activities such as organizing and chairing meetings, drafting agendas, taking minutes, and following up on actions. They know the details and keep the overview. They prepare each step in the project, can even monitor the budget and ensure the right people are doing the right things at the right moment. As people managers, we support you and your team personally.
Creating tomorrows companies and departments.
Together with our clients, start-ups and intrapreneurs we transform brilliant ideas into departments or even companies. Our methodology provides a new way of bringing innovative concepts, products and services to market. Together we build a new company or department supporting your ambition. Our methodology, experience and network minimise risk of failure and accelerate growth within fast changing markets.
We have created a workspace specifically for teams that, with or without guidance, want to achieve great insights.
You can use our inspiring space for groups up to 8 people. You can rent just the location or with workshop guidance in order to achieve the maximum result with your team. We can provide lunch and it is even possible to arrange a babysitter for children. Finally, we work closely with event agencies and beach clubs to finish your team session in a fun way at Scheveningen.
Innovation puts pressure on the organization and on you. What risks are you taking? How can you maintain an overview? How can you anticipate new developments? In short, how can you be sure of a successful innovation project, one that runs smoothly and delivers an excellent result?
We’re not only the ones that can advice but we will also invest and work hands on with you. You may learn from our mistakes from the past so you don’t have to.
As the one having final responsibility, you need a firm grip on things; you need to know that all will turn out well. 7evens innovation managers can provide you with exactly the information you require to be able to make decisions. We have a great deal of experience in this respect; we understand what is important for you.
Providing structure is the first step towards getting a focus on your project. We use our own innovation methods, but always mirror your internal processes. Moreover, when our insights grow, we also like to adapt our own processes. The result is a ecosystem like innovation process which is suited to your organization and personal goals.
Our innovation manager oversees planning and makes individuals or teams work towards a milestone that is set during the backward planning. Professional athletes use this proven method so they are ready to peak at the exact time. Our innovation manager will keep track of the schedule and divide it into small steps with a clear goal per week. When time and budget is short we can use a Design Sprint method that will solve big problems in only 5 days. This creates focus, your team will know what to do, and you can make the right decisions. An additional benefit of these milestones and sprints are that it is very satisfying and energizes the team to keep on going even when it’s getting tough.
Our innovation managers are trained as project managers and are familiar with all facets of the job. They have in-depth knowledge of the ‘hard’ side of the work, but also have experience with the ‘soft’ side. Innovation is teamwork and a successful innovation is always the result of cooperation between all the parties involved. Our project leaders always keep a close eye on the team’s performance; they speak the language of all disciplines, bridge the gap between different departments and mediate in conflicts and let you and your people shine.
Your success is our goal, we are the business coach that full fill your potential.
