What makes a Good Innovation Coach?

Released: July 14, 2021    Length: 62 min


If you want to build an invincible company, you need coaches to help guide teams through the innovation process.

Good innovation coaches have a very specific set of skills and behaviours.

They’re able to support teams with:

  • crafting hypotheses
  • prioritizing what to test
  • selecting and designing the right experiments
  • adapting value propositions and business models based on evidence 

Not only that, they push teams to adopt an entrepreneurial mindset and move fast.

We explore all this and more in this month’s StratChat. Tendayi Viki (Pirates in the Navy) and Alex Osterwalder (The Invincible Company) share their experience from the field.

As usual, we’ll also have some fun exploring what’s hot or not in the world of corporate innovation. We'll share practical tools and dive into the world of innovation coaching.

Join us if you’re looking to hire innovation coaches for your company, you’re an innovation coach yourself working inside an organization or you’re an independent consultant.
