IGPDecaux became a partner of the Osservatorio StartUp Intelligence of the MIP, the Politecnico of Milan graduate School of Business, which promotes the collaboration between StartUps and companies that want to make innovation the focal point of their cultural transformation, aiming to generate a positive impact on their organizational processes and business activities.
The Osservatorio StartUp Intelligence favours the information-sharing between the Innovation Managers of the most important Italian companies organizing workshops and seminars focused on the latest Open Innovation trends, scouting and collaborations with StartUps, sharing the best practices suggested by the companies which are particularly involved in highly innovative projects.
Among the many topics dealt by the Osservatorio, IGPDecaux focuses its attention especially on the issues related to IOT and Smart City, Agile Approach, Innovation Performance Management and Digital Workspace.
Thanks to the partnership with the Osservatorio Startup Intelligence, IGPDecaux gets the opportunity to expand its network by meeting people and companies involved into innovative projects, taking inspirations from their successful methodologies and processes. The workshops are always organized into multi-disciplinary teams, which favour the involvement of different business functions. The activities are also supported by interactive and dynamic tools like social platforms and Team Building activities.
StartUps are the main focus of the Osservatorio, a target that fits very well the Open Innovation strategy undertaken by IGPDecaux. The dialogue with the Startups, which organize their work on innovative business models, favors the development of the innovation culture in IGPDecaux.
The Osservatorio StartUp Intelligence will provide IGPDecaux with an incentive for ongoing improvements in terms of innovation. Moreover, it will also encourage the several initiatives undertaken in the context of Open Innovation which contribute to the deployment of the IGPDecaux’s innovation culture.
