DOGA Course in Design-Driven Innovation

Talk about your project

Every business innovates. We do that by creating something new, because it adds more value than what we did before. This “new” can be better work processes, new tools - or new products or services that we offer. Innovation therefore has a direct impact on the productivity and economy of the enterprise, if the “new” is actually exploited by the people for which it was created.

Here at Increo, we are fortunate to take part in our customers' innovation processes every single day. Either by facilitating innovation processes - or by bringing innovations to life with technology.

Our experience is that getting started with innovation can be frustrating, and this applies as much to large businesses as to small and start-ups. And both the public and private sectors. That is why we have joined DOGA's efforts to increase competence and methodological knowledge in Norwegian companies.

What is DOGA?

DOGA is part of the government's Innovation and Value Creation Instrument, where you can both apply for monetary support for design-driven innovation processes - and get free introductory courses in innovation process.

A course for the whole team

Driving innovation processes forward is demanding if it all rests on the determination and drive of a leader. It is the common driving force of teams made up of employees with different skills and different roles that turn out time and again to create new useful solutions. DOGA's in-depth course in design-driven innovation is a practical course scheme in which the entire team is trained in design methodology as part of the innovation process itself.

The course is designed as a structured innovation process in which the team conducts and trains on facilitating workshops with the aim of creating prototypes of real solutions and testing these on users or customers. In this way, the team receives both a proven framework for innovation - but also a practical guide to use, so that the team can work methodically further to create new solutions for the business.

6 course modules

The course consists of 6 modules that are completed in half a day each (3.5 hours). In addition, two days of fieldwork have been put in during which the team works on insight work and solution testing. The team is working on a concrete challenge from their own business.
