Is this course right for me?
Target Audience: Staff
Dr Stuart McKay, Business Development Officer, West of Scotland KTP Centre will provide an overview of changes to KTPs from May 2016.
Dr Nusa Fain, Department of Marketing, will also provide some insight from her experiences with the Howden KTP.
The KTP model has developed and evolved over the 40 years of its existence; the core remains remarkably similar despite a changing landscape, but a wealth of policies, procedures and practice has arisen within this time, some of which may no longer be helpful and which could be restricting partnerships unnecessarily.
In response to these drivers Innovate UK has performed a review of KTP Policies and Processes. The aims of the review were to:
- Reduce complexity for KTP Partnerships
- Increase speed of decision-making and project start up
- Improve quality and enhance customer experience & perceptions
- Continue to maximise impact for stakeholders
- Align with other Innovate UK products / tools where appropriate
- Align with an Innovate UK wide initiative to review business processes to focus on the customer experience and eliminate low value adding activities
- Retain the value-adding elements highlighted in the CIHE 2012 study
- Value of KTP in supporting businesses new to open innovation
- Importance of partnership development and co-creation of project
- Key role of the Associate as a boundary spanner
- Key role of the Adviser in supporting partnerships
NB. A brown-bag lunch will be provided - please indicate any special requirements when booking.
