Driving innovation in businesses across the built environment sector
IFLP: why we all need to act
Who will drive innovation in your business?
Our industry can create extraordinary built environments – sometimes profitably – using the imagination, skill and determination of some very talented people.
But too often businesses resist significant sustained change because of traditional cultures, procurement, delivery processes and poor investment.
Companies across the sector need to act to ensure those driving innovation now and for the future have innovation at their core – or continue to suffer unnecessarily poorer profitability, client satisfaction, worker motivation and environmental impact than is achievable through sustained innovation.
IFLP will equip future leaders within your company and across the sector with the knowledge, connections, confidence and practice to successfully drive innovation. IFLP is:
A 12 month programme comprising of quarterly highly interactive 2-day residential workshops led by expert innovators – long enough to make a difference, short enough to see one
For up to 16 high-potential, highly-driven people on each series – carefully selected to create a quality mix of construction clients, consultants, contractors, suppliers and specialists. See further details in participants
Structured so participants address a very real business challenge within their company – whilst also developing that individual too
Supported by CIOB
Delivered by an expert team:
The team is led by Sarah Winckless MBE (exceptional facilitator of leadership development programmes in Government and private sector) with expert sessions delivered by some world-leading innovators in tech companies, Motorsport, construction, consultancy, retail, procurement, utilities, policy, government and more.
1. Series Launch
Participants and their sponsors will get a taste of the programme, with an introductory session led by a global tech giant on why we should innovate as well as a panel of innovation experts from various backgrounds.
2. Four Workshops
Sarah Winckless and our team of innovation experts from within and beyond the sector will share their knowledge, experience and insights to ensure participants understand how others successfully innovate. Participants then apply that knowledge to their own business challenge to make an immediate difference to their company.
3. Showcase Event
Participants will celebrate their achievements and showcase their work from the programme at an evening event with their sponsors and the IFLP network.
