Valentin and his colleagues from Austria and Switzerland created a periodic table of innovation with a total 59 elements, which they incorporated into a story in their book “Corporate Innovation Mindset: The Redesign of Your Corporate DNA” which was published in German last year. The book describes the successful transformation from a traditional player to a successful company that is able to operate with a completely redesigned business model to face the challenges of the 21st century.

The participants of the workshop will work with these specific 59 innovation genes and will discuss them in detail in smaller groups.

Valentin will introduce the concept at the beginning of the workshop and then moderate a discussion of participants’ experiences with the material in the context of versatile organizational design.
