Mastering Collaborative Innovation through Events

Short time, well facilitated, cooperation efforts, often linked to specific live events (during which a community gathers around one ore more challenges, or a topics) can be an extraordinary experience and deliver outstanding results.

The adoption of well-tested methodologies summed up with a natural inclination of people to meet and share plus the huge amount of learning that this kind of events can trigger make so made contexts the ideal tool to generate multiplier effects and produce much more value than the necessary investments would recall.

That’s why in many contexts, ranging from social to corporate innovation, from product design to business modelling short-term cooperative events are gaining an important role.

The fourth era of innovation (or fifth perhaps), will be a matter of methods and contexts, efficiency and cooperation.

The corporate that will be thriving in this era will be different in shape and strategy, from the one of today which is too busy designing new complexities to start thinking about the future.
