Workshops

Cybersecurity Principal Investigator Value Creation Workshop

 Innovation is the primary means of growth, prosperity, and quality of life that creates abundance in an extremely competitive world by teams who are committed to creating a compelling value for their customers. SRI International’s unique course in Value Creation helps participants improve their skills in formulating and articulating a compelling value proposition to effectively engage integration and transition partners. The course is led by highly experienced workshop facilitators and innovation experts and includes an interactive discussion of the Five Disciplines of Innovation and increasingly detailed presentations by each participant in a Value Creation Forum—where each participant delivers a summary of his/her Value Proposition and receives structured critique and feedback.

Program objectives include coaching participants on how to:

  • Recognize major innovation opportunities, while eliminating those that are merely interesting.
  • Develop compelling value propositions for customers, partners, and the enterprise.
  • Establish a disciplined process for rapidly evaluating and developing new innovations while minimizing risk.
  • Collaborate more effectively with customers and colleagues to assemble the best teams.
  • Identify and remove obstacles that inhibit innovation.
