This workshop will enable participants to learn a methodology to systematically determine a pipeline and portfolio of innovation projects aligned with the strategy of an organization (company, business unit or department).

The methodology consists of a series of tools integrated to facilitate multifunctional teams to generate the innovation vision and strategies, identify problems that obstruct their achievement, and define strategic innovation projects to solve them.
