KLCII’s “Small Step Innovation – The New Norm” training course, which aims to groom innovation champions to help organisations further grow their business, has been a success since its launch in February this year. The Institute recently ran its 10th training course, with a total of over 170 students whom have successfully completed the training.

The course is packed with knowledge and techniques to help participants effectively lead, catalyse, and facilitate the innovation process. Through concepts, case studies and best practices cross-industries, course participants also have the opportunity to examine success stories of innovative companies and gain valuable insights for creating an innovation momentum from ground up.

Areas covered include Design Thinking for Creative Problem Solving, Agile and Purposeful User Research that includes Gap Analysis, Mapping an Innovation Portfolio, Facilitating Collective Imagination and Ideation, Adopting Lean Experimentation and Scaling, and Bringing Concepts to Life with Prototyping & Storytelling.

Mr Ivan Lau, Business Development Manager from Kinderland International Education, said the course was successful and the flow and pacing was good.

“ I enjoyed the project most of all, it helps us to immediately apply knowledge and skills that we have acquired in the teaching,” he added.

Nur Syafiqah Binte Mohamad Zolkipli, Senior Preschool Teacher from Skool4Kidz, said: “I’ve learnt to create a conducive working environment that encourages innovation, I like how the trainers help us look through the lens of our “customers” to really understand their needs.”
