Driving Ideas to Market


Experiences with Fincalabs

Who is taking part?

The DIGITAL INNOVATION CAMP offers different sessions from beginner to expert level. There were amongst others already participants of: Deutsche Bahn AG, SAP, TUI Cruises, FIVE1,, Volkswagen AG, Vorwerk Digital, Prolog Innovation and the Digital Lab of Nürnberger Versicherung.

The first week: AGILE INNOVATION FRAMEWORK & Design Sprints
From Agile Coach, Scrum Master, Project Manager and Consultant to Product Management, HR and Innovation Management to Business Management: the most exciting results often come through a mixture. The exchange in the depths among "equals" is productive, even more perspectives are added, it gets even better.

The second week: AGILE LEADERSHIP SUMMIT for for Managing Directors and Executives
From a systemic point of view, it is of little use if Agility only takes place in individual departments. The Agile transition has consequences for the entire organization and is therefore a guiding theme.

Different tracks from beginner to expert level
Experienced Agilists get space for high level topics and beginners get the necessary basic knowledge.

Creative Mind Training

Creativity and intellectual competence
1 day, 15./22. 05.2019

Mindfulness, creativity and mental competence

Innovation is not only an indispensable process for all organizations, but also a permanent challenge for oneself. Often, however, despite all tools, we are in a blockade. In Zen coaching, out of the blue, doors can suddenly open up and new perspectives emerge.

Creative Mind Training trains different Meditation Techniques, Yoga and Quigong, which strengthen and expand the spiritual possibilities in everyday life. In addition to the technical knowledge, it is usually awareness and reflectivity that contribute significantly to success. The workshop also provides theoretical background and methods for strengthening mental abilities.
