Kuwait Times - - WHAT’S ON -

Novem­ber 6th to 8th marked an in­ter­est­ing part­ner­ship be­tween ShiftIN and Vigor Events as they hosted the 1st edi­tion of the In­no­va­tion Man­age­ment Cer­ti­fi­ca­tion Pro­gram in Kuwait with sup­port from the In­ter­na­tional Ad­ver­tis­ing As­so­ci­a­tion (IAA) Kuwait Chap­ter. The pro­gram is de­signed as an in­ter­ac­tive work­shop aim­ing at de­vel­op­ing the nec­es­sary ca­pa­bil­i­ties in both, pub­lic and pri­vate sec­tor or­ga­ni­za­tions and is cer­ti­fied by the pres­ti­gious Global In­no­va­tion Man­age­ment In­sti­tute, the Bos­ton-based non-for-profit pro­fes­sional or­ga­ni­za­tion driv­ing stan­dards for in­no­va­tion man­age­ment world­wide.

Busi­ness in­no­va­tion is a per­va­sive force in today’s fast chang­ing en­vi­ron­ment. In fact, CEOs around the world rec­og­nize that busi­ness in­no­va­tion is not only a core driver for cre­at­ing and cap­tur­ing new busi­ness value, but it’s also the key to long-term busi­ness sur­vival and suc­cess. “Over the last decade, we have seen many im­pres­sive in­no­va­tion break­throughs in a range of in­dus­tries. De­spite such suc­cesses, in­no­va­tion does not come eas­ily. It is not enough to merely de­clare, we want to be more in­no­va­tive.” said Roberto Wyszkowski a Part­ner of ShiftIN Part­ner with large ex­pe­ri­ence in Kuwait where he has been lead­ing en­gage­ment with Zain and the Na­tional Tech­nol­ogy En­ter­prises Com­pany NTEC.

The pro­gram that has been adopted by ma­jor MBA Pro­grams and Cor­po­ra­tions all over the world in­clud­ing many For­tune 500 com­pa­nies, is still rel­a­tively in the re­gion. How­ever, these stan­dards are be­com­ing very pop­u­lar among lead­ing or­gan­i­sa­tions such as Zain Tele­com, DEWA, the UAE Prime Min­is­ter’s Of­fice and Eti­salat has started to adopt its frame­works and tools to boost in­no­va­tion man­age­ment ca­pa­bil­i­ties. In its Kuwaiti edi­tion, the course was at­tended by se­nior ex­ec­u­tives from the pres­ti­gious or­gan­i­sa­tions sucha as Equate, Hadi Clinic, Kout Food Group and Habchi and Chal­houb. “This work­shop is de­signed to build aware­ness, ex­cite­ment and recog­ni­tion for the im­por­tance of busi­ness in­no­va­tion” said Carlos Gue­vara, Part­ner of ShiftIN Part­ners and Lead Trainer of this course.

The wife of the Peru­vian Am­bas­sador to Kuwait invited fel­low In­ter­na­tional Women’s Group mem­bers to a Peru­vian cook­ing show hosted at Ruby Tues­day re­cently.
