What are innovation workshops

Whether you want to develop new ideas or evaluate and finalize existing ideas, our innovation workshops will help you to develop promising and well thought-out concepts. Our methods enable employees to develop the best ideas instead of just as many as possible – from the first brainstorming session through to detailed elaboration.

Idea workshops are primarily used to generate ideas for innovative products or services using creativity techniques. After an initial evaluation of the ideas, the first approaches are then concretized and deepened. Innovation workshops not only consider the idea, but all relevant aspects for successful innovation. These include, for example, motivation and orientation of the company management, customer understanding, technical feasibility, concept evaluation, business case, prototypes, validation in the target group and benchmarks for innovation.

Cleverly organized, a lot of work happens before and after the workshop. The innovation workshop itself is compact and time-saving. The participants’ day-to-day business remains virtually undisturbed.

How innovation workshops work

The entire innovation workshop process is divided into four phases:



In this phase, it is important to build mutual trust between the company management and the consulting team.



Every company is different. And not every recipe for success can be transferred everywhere without further ado. An innovation pilot project helps to work out the company's unique characteristics in terms of innovation capability and at the same time to create the first presentable, inspiring innovation successes.



Innovation has to happen all by itself. Working on the innovation system and the nine fields of action makes it possible to achieve this goal. to achieve innovative capability. The focus of this phase is on enabling the organization and its employees to make regular, ever larger and more successful innovations.



Innovations accompanied by innovation consulting are only half the battle. They are comparable to driving lessons. Sure: you get from A to B. But sooner or later, friends and fans should be in the car, not the driving instructor. And the car must also be a different one! This is done by developing moderators and innovators within the company. Specific training, selective coaching and working together on the big chunks. Because the unclouded view from the outside is a rare plant of irreplaceable value. No one has yet succeeded in breeding them within a company.

Matching whitepapers on the topic

Innovation is persuasion. Many people first have to be convinced that innovation can be learned, that creativity is not a mysterious character trait and that everyone is capable of developing patent-ready solutions. Because mountains can only be moved when many people pull together. White papers are a good means of persuasion. They are free of charge, practically oriented and can be read by anyone without any entry barriers.

About the innovation consultancy TOM SPIKE

Established companies have the day-to-day business well under control. The innovation consultancy TOM SPIKE supports companies that want to create unique, new products and offers and have not done so for many years or are not satisfied with the results.

Innovation efforts often take one to four years throughout the company. Despite enormous efforts, market success is often moderate. This is an important reason why attempts at innovation often lead to frustration and disappointment. If you know that innovation is a craft and use the right tools effectively, you will save yourself the frustration. TOM SPIKE supports companies that are not in the mood for frustration when it comes to innovation.

Innovation is a craft

Innovation workshops are a great way to create targeted successes to enable and legitimize innovation and create breakthrough results that can never be achieved through individual work and task ping-pong. With the right participants, established workshop formats reliably deliver convincing results.

Of course, innovation workshops are not a panacea for innovation success. Only market success turns an idea into an innovation. And market success requires a lot of work in all areas of the company and on the market. The following questions can be solved particularly well in the workshop format:

  • What does the customer of tomorrow want?
  • What challenge do I really need to work on?
  • What innovation strategy do we want to pursue as a company?
  • How can this customer request be solved technically?
