PRODUCT INNOVATION WORKSHOPS

A simple way to discover our team and the working methodology we use to accompany innovators and intrapreneurs.

Starting with a list of ideas or internal challenges, these workshops encourage all collaborators - even non-technical team members - to, in groups of 4 to 9 people:

  • Explore the validity of their idea thanks to Usine IO documentation
  • Create mockups and prototypes of their product or service
  • Prepare a pitch (video, poster or slide deck) to promote their idea
  • Quickly analyse the technical feasibility with Usine IO experts

This active workshop has several objectives:

  • Ice-breakers and team-building
  • Concrete work on use-cases and innovation projects
  • The discovery of an agile methodology
  • The qualification of ideas in order to prepare for formal presentation/pitching

Full or half-day format:

  • Clarification of ideas with the Product Model Canvas by Usine IO
  • Rapid prototyping with access to basic materials and tools
