Kinesis Innovation program

Lead paragraph

In the innovation program, the management and personnel of companies identify and utilize the business opportunities arising from the change in society. In order to succeed in an ever-changing world, you need to be agile and find opportunities for change.

The operating environment of companies is constantly changing due to, among other things, the tightening of responsibility requirements, digitalisation and the pandemic. That is why companies need to respond more quickly to customers' changing needs with new services and products - innovations.

Companies participating in the Kinesis program are developing their innovation activities and moving towards their full potential with the support of Haaga-Helia's experienced experts.

The Kinesis program, funded by the Häme ELY Center and the European Social Fund, is free of charge for participants - the program is funded by public de minimis support for companies.

Ohjelman sisältö

The Kinesis program, which begins in the fall of 2022 and runs through the spring of 2023, has two paths: Leadership path and Innovation path.

The Management path seeks and finds ways to ensure profitable growth and business. The path offers an opportunity to broaden your own thinking and develop as an innovative leader together with other entrepreneurs and CEOs. The key theme is the ability to anticipate change and ensure the company’s success in the future. The coaching includes, among other things, expert plotting related to the company's development needs, webinars on current themes and joint workshops.

In the Innovation path we form an idea of ​​how the change in the company's operating environment and one's own customer understanding can be utilized in business development. The result may be a single new innovation (for example validation of a new product or business model by customers) or a more efficient way to take advantage of new business opportunities. Coaching includes, among other things, brainstorming hackathon, facilitated workshops, and digital library development tools.
