Get ready for the AI-first world.
Innovation isn’t a mandate. It’s a state of mind. Challenging people to “think outside the box” is more likely to freeze creativity than foster it.
You know you need to innovate to become a truly digital business. But how? At our Avanade Innovation Days, you’ll discover what other companies are doing digitally both within and outside your industry.
Our customized workshops bring your cross-department teams together with our world-leading experts to discuss trends, demonstrate solutions, develop ideas and put them into action.
Innovation Days are inspirational, collaborative and practical sessions. Over a half or full day, they take you on a three-step journey, which will evolve your ideas from whiteboard to reality.
Step 1: Discover. We demonstrate real-world examples of innovations that our clients have achieved using Microsoft technologies. We also show you new technologies that are set to power the digital business.
Step 2: Collaborate. We facilitate the session together with your team. We work with you to focus the discussion on a specific theme or opportunity, exploring ideas that will achieve your objectives.
Step 3: Act. Participants work together to prioritise the ideas uncovered during the day. At the end of the session, you’ll have a concrete immediate action plan and a long-term innovation agenda.
Avanade runs close to 250 Innovation Days a year with clients across the globe. We can host a session at your workplace, or welcome you to one of our Innovation Centers.
Our growing network includes facilities in Barcelona, Chicago, Bangalore, Beijing and New York. And we have industry-specific centers focused on health, retail, banking, consumer goods and services, insurance and utilities.
Don’t worry if your sector isn’t listed. Innovation is often inspired by a change of scene and context. Some of the best ideas unearthed at our Innovation Days have come from seeing how other industries are responding to similar challenges.
