Working Together on Project

Workshops

Come with a problem, leave with a plan. Innovation on Purpose workshops are hands-on working sessions that guide teams through the most important challenges of innovation.

Workshops include a planning pre-call to discuss your unique needs, so the workshop can be tailored to you. They include proprietary tools and workbooks that can be modified and reused as you choose.

 

On-site or online for up to 20 participants, workshops are priced at $15,000, plus travel if applicable. Workshops are 6 hours.
 

Workshop Extensions keep your project moving with three 1-hour follow-up sessions to review progress on next steps identified in-workshop and provide the opportunity for additional Q&A. Adding an extension is only $2,500.

Currently we offer three strategic and three tactical workshops:

Strategy Workshops: Foundations to Innovate

Align your team and create the strategic focus necessary to innovate on purpose.

Who should attend? Those who set product and go-to-market strategy and the cross-functional teams that deliver it.

360-Degree Innovation

Who should attend? Product and go-to-market teams and their cross-functional partners.

Black Background

A Winning Win/Loss Program

Problem Solved: Most organizations are doing win/loss analysis. Badly. Ask anyone and they’ll tell you the effort isn’t delivering what they need to succeed. How can you plan, perform and communicate win/loss analysis to inspire teams and spark innovation? 

Leave With: Roles and responsibilities map for win/loss activities. A plan to break through specific win/loss roadblocks. A roadmap for win/loss and detailed action plan to fill knowledge gaps. 

Who should attend? Product marketing, product management, sales: any team members responsible for win/loss analysis or contributing to the knowledge pool.

Beyond Personas

Problem Solved: You need to understand the people who buy and use your products, but do you need more than that to lead the market? Yes. It’s time to build a better persona – and then some.

Leave With: Inventory of personas and other entities you need to learn about to achieve your innovation goals. A plan to prioritize, gather and use that knowledge to succeed.

Who should attend? Product marketing, product management and commercialization team members.

Positioning to Win

Problem Solved: How can you compete with free? What about that well-funded giant? The hot new startup? You need to know how your market views your competition, and how you can stand out in the crowd and win. 

Leave With: Positioning for your most important markets. A method to activate positioning statements in internal and market-facing communications. Tools that enable you to shift your positioning to continue winning as the market changes.

Who should attend? Product marketing, product management, sales: any team members responsible for creating positioning.

All workshops can be modified to include Pragmatic Institute tools at no additional cost. At least one workshop participant must have been certified in a Pragmatic Institute course to do so.
