Program

DAY 1 November 27

Setting the scene - The Day After Tomorrow

Our nexxworks partners will introduce you to how new technologies and business models are changing the world. We'll dig deeper into how our customers and society are changing as a result of this. To conclude, we'll meet some entrepreneurs and companies with a clear vision on their Day After Tomorrow. How do they tackle their challenges?

Even if you think you know a lot about radical innovation, the first day of the Bootcamp might be just a little bit scary. It's like watching a scary movie: you know something is about to happen, still you scream from the top of your lungs the moment it actually does.

These first sessions will open your eyes to a new reality. The rest of the week will help you on your own way to survive this jungle.

DAY 2 November 28

Who is our customer, really? 

Are you up for another round of changing the way you look at the world? Today we move forward full force on a journey into the mind of our customer. We start out by literally exploring the unexpected ways by which the mind makes decisions. After that, we can start rebuilding up our entire proposition from scratch.

You'll learn how to use technology to better serve your customer, not merely as a cool gadget. You'll learn how to ideate and design products and services which are truly customer centric. Make sure to pay close attention, because it's about time to get your hands dirty!

There really is only one goal today: how close can you get to your customer? Maybe you can even get them inside the building ...

DAY 3 November 29

A little bit more than gadgets... 

Technology is not only about bright and shiny gadgets. It can actually assist you in achieving some pretty impressive results. That's what day 3 is all about: how technology can help us, humans or businesses, to become a better version of ourselves. The learnings can be applied in any part of your business, from manufacturing to marketing!

We'll span a whole range of technologies, from digital (data) to physical (robots) and everything in between. Some may be applicable today - your competitors might already be using them - while others could make you jump the competition in quantum leaps.

We can't tell you whether you'll end this day with a revised sales and marketing plan, or a new best robo-friend. That's all up to you!

DAY 4 November 30

A Copernican revolution!

In these times of protectionism, walls and closed borders we are preaching the exact opposite. Take a look outside! And yes, you can take that quite literally. Nature is still lightyears ahead of us when competing on innovation skills. So maybe it can teach us a thing or two? These learnings are applicable from product improvements to the org charts of multinationals.

And we continue on this track by further exploring how technology is also moving in this direction. From the Personal Computer to distributed computing. And companies are moving in the same way too. From siloed fortresses to places of enlightenment.

By now you might think you'll never be able to take on all the learnings of this bootcamp. And that's exactly right, you'll have to engage a network!

DAY 5 December 01

What's your next chapter?

Can you still handle it? You're almost ready to head back to work. Though we suggest you first spend a weekend with family and friends to digest this intensive week. Your colleagues will be looking forward to hearing your stories. Those closest to you maybe even more so!  Don't worry, we've got you covered on this last day.

Today is about wrapping it all up. Together, we'll summarize this week. More importantly, we'll take a look into the future and the challenges ahead of us. Both for ourselves as professionals, and also the businesses we are working in.

We'll make sure to go out with a bang. But no worries, this is no goodbye!
