Business Model Innovation, 9.am to 12pm
Stavros Sindakis, Ph.D., Christian Walter, IKI-SEA
Business Model Innovation is getting more and more into the focus of organization, giving the successful examples such as Amazon or Google. But what is actually a Business Model, and what is Business Model Innovation? How can your organization benefit from it and how can you get started? This workshop gives you a hands-on introduction to the power of Business Model Innovation. We use the Business Model Canvas and challenge you to re-think how businesses are run today and imagine how they will be running tomorrow.
Customer Co-Creation, 1pm to 4pm
Stavros Sindakis, Ph.D., Christian Walter, IKI-SEA
Co-creation is about collaboration. It’s about working with your customers to solve problems, and develop new products. Co-creation breaks the old NPD process of research and development, where you go back and forth between creative agencies, research agencies and your customers. Your customers are already discussing your products online. Why not use their opinions to develop new products and services? Customer idea generation means outputs are richer and more complete, and ultimately ideas move to market more quickly and cost-effectively. This workshop will provide you with an overview on how customer co- creation can help your organization develop new services and products. We teach you the different methods and tools of customer co-creation, and how to implement them in your NPD Process.

KM Strategic Alignment: A top down and bottom up approach, 9am to 12pm
Prof. Dr. Vincent Ribiere, IKI-SEA
Many organizations struggle with demonstrating the benefits of KM. This is often due to the lack of a clear KM strategy definition at the early stage of a KM initiative. We believe that an emphasis should be put first on the most critical knowledge domains of a company. Knowledge criticality is often perceived in different ways by people at the operational level than by people at the strategic level, so the idea is to collect both points of view and to look for an alignment later on. This workshop will present the steps and tools allowing to first identify critical knowledge domains from different points of view and secondly to align these points of view in order to identify where KM activities are most needed.
Action Learning, 1pm to 4pm
Peter Cauwelier, ASIO Consuting
As leaders, we are expected to give answers. Why would an organization hire us if not to provide answers to problems? Yet, problems in the current complex business world exceed the knowledge of a single leader or expert. Leaders in a complex world must ask more and better questions. Action learning is a problem-solving leadership development process that involves a small group working on a real problem, taking action and learning as individuals, as a team, and as an organization while doing so. Action learning is an effective answer to the key challenges organizations face: solving problems, developing leaders and building teams. Action learning is used by leading companies to solve critical business challenges and to develop their leaders.
