The Innovation Workshop is a set of tools and techniques to help intrapreneurs at Autodesk and partner entrepreneurs bring their great ideas to life. Participants develop great ideas, gather data to validate their ideas and develop pitches to gain support for on-going development of their ideas. As much as the Innovation Workshop is about developing great ideas, it is also about developing confidence to challenge the status quo and drive positive cultural change.
This process of developing great ideas, gathering data to validate them, and pitching to management for support is something that everyone can do and be successful in. As they do it, they will find that they are learning things not only about their customers and industries but about themselves. This process develops leadership skills that lead to lasting and meaningful culture change where individuals confidently make their businesses stronger
