About The Innovation Toolkit with Stephen Spencer

There’s reopening, then there’s building back better, then there’s creating a sustainable long-term future, for our communities, our destinations and for our businesses. The Innovation Toolkit will introduce inspirational people, practical case studies, and innovation-led techniques to foster an innovation mindset and motivate the audience to take action, together, to build forward better.

The Innovation Toolkit is designed to facilitate business journeys from crisis/stagnation to a new sustainable future, via the application of tools and techniques including:

  • POSITIVE Compass – a diagnostic tool designed to create a rounded view of the organisation’s current position, challenges and assets. The eight-step process can be facilitated or done as a self-assessment, covering the following:
    • Purpose – finding your Why? Mission, vision and values
    • Organisation – fit for (a changed) purpose?
    • Service – what is your value proposition for customers?
    • Innovation – how adaptable are you? How much change is needed?
    • Team – who do you rely on to deliver your value proposition?
    • Incentive – how effective are your reward and recognition programmes?
    • Verdict – what results are you achieving? How will you measure success?
    • Energy – how will you drive and sustain momentum?
  • Experience Explorer – an innovation process matching assets to consumers and business models, leading to reimagined business with new energy and built for sustainability
  • InSite – providing a framework and expertise to build a new model, using innovative systems thinking, enabling the new strategy to be implemented with maximum effectiveness and long-term viability.
