Accelerating Value Creation: Level-up Your Innovation Practice (Jun 26-27)
Learn how to level-up your innovation practice
In today’s fast-changing markets, delivering innovative, customer-centric solutions at speed is both essential and challenging. This immersive workshop from Moves The Needle — previously available only in enterprise settings — will amplify your transformation capability by applying Lean Innovation.
You will learn a systematic approach of unconventional thinking driven by new mindsets and intentionality for applying the right tools and techniques. Working with real business challenges, we will equip you to discover hidden customer needs using deep empathy and rapid experimentation techniques. This will accelerate your ability to infuse bold new ideas and establish a truly customer-centric culture in your organization.
Who is this workshop for?
Whether you are a start-up or a large enterprise, this workshop will enhance your understanding of the innovation process and help you move forward with precision and speed to drive successful business results.
You will take on real business challenges to practice customer immersion. We will share our empathy tools and how to apply them to discover hidden customer needs. Teams of 3-4 go out, find customers and learn how to interact with strangers. Along with hands-on learning participants will gain access to MTN’s resources that take empathy beyond a one-time activity.
You will also develop expertise to de-risk assumptions and gain evidence by running targeted experiments. You brainstorm assumptions, develop testable hypotheses, and design an experiment to quickly test the viability of your ideas. From digital tests to physical prototypes, teams of 3-5 will run experiments to test their hypotheses in the real world to get results you can trust.

What’s it like to attend the two-day workshop?
Moves The Needle’s in-person workshops provide a unique experience to harness your entrepreneurial spirit. Be prepared for fast-paced days – there will be some presentations by expert coaches but most of your time will be spent gaining hands-on customer empathy and running experiments on real-world problems. You will be immersed into a new way of working that will help catalyze your transformation. Since you will be working in teams, you will also gain new perspectives from each other.
