For anyone who is responsible for planning the future direction of the business and wants innovation and creativity to play a more significant role in operations.

Only 57% of businesses have an Innovation Plan – what percentage do you want to be in?

If I was to pay a visit to you and ask you to show me the innovation process for you and your team, what would you show me?

This project will unpack our nine-step process to turning an identified risk into a measurable plan of action for the real-world.

More importantly, it will increase your awareness of and ability to respond to common roadblocks that derail even the best-laid plans. By working together, you will develop a toolbox of responses and insights so you can create a plan with the best chance of success.

It is a four-week course, and we've built-in some flexibility to help you find a balance between work, life and study. The key thing to remember is that you will be working on solving a real business problem in this course, and your business will benefit directly from it.

At the end of the course, you will have designed a creative yet practical and detailed Activation Plan that can be implemented back into your business.

Session Focus


Your Learning Process

It starts with Strategy. Sometimes you can't see the wood for the trees. Getting another perspective from someone who is not in your shoes can help you to get out of the detail and look at the big picture.

Co-designing smart, creative strategy with our clients so there is buy in, commitment and understanding.

Identifying the skill and capability needed within people/businesses to successfully execute the strategy. And facilitating the learning and development with clients to respond to the skill gaps.

Co-designing the processes, systems and internal resources need to successfully execute the strategy.

Being alongside clients and acting as a strategic and creative sounding board as the ideas and plans are executed into the market.

Your face to face Experience – in person or remotely

It will be engaging, collaborative, practical and bespoke. We will be working to solve a real problem in your business.

Success Story: Kiikstart & Department of Premier & Cabinet

The Department of Premier and Cabinet connected with Kiikstart as key skill gaps with staff capability led to risk and vulnerability in terms of the department being able to deliver on its objectives.

The rate of change had accelerated within the team due to changing community expectations, but the current business model and team's skill-set was failing to keep up. 

A planned approach using both the Innovation Capability Review and the Activation Plan provided the process and business models needed to upskill the ICT team. 

Together we designed a clear plan of action to:

Allow the leadership team to identify the most important skill gaps and risks that would act as roadblocks to delivering on future success.

Consider potential scenarios and allow for different approaches to be considered.

Prioritise and focus around the key skill gaps and risk with a detailed plan of response in terms of learning and development processes and resources.

Create a clear, practical activation plan that took the risk and skill gaps and scoped it into a personalised nine part approach with innovation at its core.

By undertaking this project the Department was able to be focused on high value output as part of designing the learning and development processes and models moving into the future.

Focusing on only the top three risks from the Innovation Capability Review, and understanding how to prioritise the use of resources more strategically, the activation plan was simplified and practical. To deliver the best possible outcomes without long lead times.

What they said...

My colleagues and I met Ali at a 'skills for the future' event. What struck me immediately was her goodwill, approachable nature and strong sense of purpose and passion for her work and the industry. Lots of people talk about innovation, but Ali lives it. She has a global mindset and challenges the status quo.

Over the course of working with her, Ali asked us the pointy questions at the right times to help us evolve our thinking and create work that is both practical and action-oriented, and cutting edge and aspirational. I highly recommend her as a workforce strategist and learning and development coach.”
