The pandemic has been extremely challenging, both on the human and economic front. But, as history has shown us, repeatedly, a crisis often brings opportunities for innovation and change. Thus, it is critical that we leverage our abilities to produce a strong, sustained, and inclusive response to the ongoing crisis.
To further strengthen our confidence and intensify our co-operation, we are pleased to announce Ideathon 2020 – an opportunity to rethink and reimagine sustainable business in the new normal. The event entails an intensive brainstorming workshop to address some of the most pressing challenges of our time. The main aim is to generate possible contactless cross-functional employee process ideas to achieve competitive advantage and be ready for the future.
You will also be receiving expert guidance from our function leaders, who will mentor your ideation and creation process. Our business leaders will be on the jury panel and nominate the final implementable ideas.
We acknowledge that an Ideathon is not for everyone because of the time commitment and intensity. For us, it’s important to capture ideas from our wider business. Hence we are inviting everyone to submit their innovative ideas prior to the event. These raw ideas will be selectively picked up by participants for the Ideathon and the selected entries will get recognition.
An Ideathon is a useful innovation tool for exploring difficult problems and creating new and innovative solutions. It does not have to involve technology but usually does. This is a strictly time-boxed event during which representatives from various disciplines come together to form diverse, multi-disciplinary teams and collaborate intensively.
