Innovation in Austrade

Austrade is Australia’s Trade and Investment Commission and play a critical role in helping Australian businesses succeed in trade and investment globally.  Austrade engaged our services to support an ideas competition by building the innovation capabilities of its staff.  The program was co-designed with Austrade to ensure the training met the strategic intent and unique requirements of Austrade.

Over the course of the program we trained over 500 Austrade staff stationed around the globe in the critical aspects of design thinking and innovation. 

Through a highly experiential program, participants learned methods for problem exploration, solution ideation, experimenting through prototyping and refinement, and the importance of engaging networks for building coalitions of support.
