Check in with a business case and check out with an innovative solution. Each half hour a thinker will visit you to come up with a new insight to solve your question. The questions that are presented can be very divers.
A few weeks before the start of the innovation thinking hotel, the questions are already submitted to the thinkers. This way we will achieve better results. On Thursday 11th of April 2019 the thinkers will gather in the think hotel and brainstorm together. More additional questions can be asked to retain better results.
What kind of business cases will be submitted? For example: What does the station of the future look like? How do I get my innovation implemented? How can I innovate successfully and make my company future proof? How does the European Commission ensure more groundbreaking innovations in Europe? Or how do we create banks and insurance companies that break with investments in fossile fuels? The questions are diverse but always linked to the growth and innovation of the company. The method of the book 'The Egg of Columbus' is the guiding principle of the day. In preparation for the day, the company's 'Why' and 'DNA' will be formulated and linked to megatrends and social challenges, making the company indispensable for future markets.
