Innovation workshop @ Monash University (10, 11 May 2019)
This week, I went to a fabulous 2-day workshop with the good folk at Monash University, during which we spoke about innovation practices in both commercial and non-commercial project environments.
Challenging, tiring, exciting, intense, interesting!
We used a multi-disciplinary approach, drawing on human centered design thinking and process improvement as two lenses through which to look for innovation opportunities within organisations.
Our discussions were informed by process analysis,human centered design thinking, Lean, Six Sigma, sustainability thinking and most exciting (for me, at least!) Industry 4.0.
Now, my brain is full and I have submission deadlines looming. Time to write.
Cliff Bellamy Award @ Monash University (16 April 2019)
I was thrilled to receive the Cliff Bellamy Award tonight, recognising my studies at Monash University in 2018. It’s so nice to be recognised by my Faculty for the effort that I put in last year.
Wonderful venue, lovely food and wine, great company. My fav bit? Showing my lovely people around the campus – such a nice feeling.
Actually, I’m feeling very lucky right now!
Site Visit – Food Innovation Centre @ Monash University (15 April 2019)
As part of my Masters studies, we had a site visit today to the Monash University Food Innovation Centre – to look at how innovation frameworks and thinking can be applied in commercial environments.
Time to take the thinking out of the classroom and see how it works in practice.
Brilliant innovative thinking, creative design work, collaboration, prototyping, imagination, augmented reality, and the best dang 3D printer that I’ve ever seen!
Today was a good day!
