Innovation programme for SMB

In our innovation program for SMEs, we have received clear feedback that one of the most useful modules was involving innovation. Here, together with the companies, we have analyzed which players have the greatest value in including - it can be employees, customers, suppliers, the board or someone completely different. Once the companies had chosen who they would prioritize, we prepared clear structures for the work by defining clear goals and activities that could be implemented. The conclusion? It's amazing how much value you can get with even fairly small grips.

Managing innovation at sustainable health

Several African countries have major challenges in achieving the sustainability goals and face complex challenges in the form of rapid demographic shifts, high levels of poverty, large refugee populations, climate change and institutional and state instability. Together with Karolinska Institutet (Sweden) and Makerere University (Uganda), we have developed and delivered a digital skills development program for leaders from the health sector in the GDR Congo, Somalia and Uganda. The aim of the program is to increase participants' competence to work more strategically, innovatively and cross-sectorally to increase access to health services in vulnerable contexts. The program is divided into three modules where Tinkr has developed and implemented the one that deals with innovation and management for innovation. The program is part of the virtual Center of Excellence for Sustainable Health (CESH) where Tinkr is a partner: https://cesh.health/

Stad Municipality

When Eid and Selje municipality merged and became Stad, innovation and co-creation were a priority area to ensure sustainable social development. Tinkr has contributed to several innovation projects within, among other things, political organization, meaningful and active life for young people as well as health and care. At the beginning of 2020, they wanted to take the next step. By establishing an interdisciplinary innovation team, they were able to combine the implementation of innovation projects with the development of innovation competence in the organization. During 9 months and 9 sessions, the participants have worked on innovation projects that have given them practical training in the innovation process. We have combined key methods and tools for effective innovation with the development of an innovation team that has delivered concrete value through the projects.

We carry out comprehensive competence programmes

If you really want to build competence on innovation in the organization, the combination of professional complement, collaboration and tasks that provide actual value is very good. Especially if you have some duration on the program.

Innovation Norway

Innovation Norway wanted to increase the use of innovative procurement in the humanitarian sector. One of the challenges is that innovative procurements are a bit difficult to carry out and quite time and resource consuming. With that as a starting point, we prepared a guide for innovation-friendly procurement. Innovation-friendly procurement is a good starting point for organizations that want to have a greater focus on innovation in their procurement. By focusing a little more on a good needs analysis, carrying out some market dialogue activities and having more open requirements specifications, you can get a much greater innovation potential in ordinary procurement without requiring too much. The guide says a lot more about this, so just send us a message and we will send it to you!

Troms and Finnmark County Council

Together with Troms and Finnmark County Council, we prepared an application for innovation partnerships for innovation Norway for the project "securing avalanches on the road". They came through the eye of the needle, and we have assisted in the work on demand analysis, structuring of the project and the development of a requirement specification. The majority of our work in the project has been related to the market dialogue where through the portal we have www.markedsdialog.no have secured thorough and common information to the market, been responsible for implementation and registration for dialogue conferences and one-on-one meetings, secured a large degree of media coverage, cooperation with a number of networks and clusters. In all the work, we have focused on meeting startups and entrepreneurs and suppliers who do not usually deliver in this area – and motivate them to submit a tender.

Rollag Municipality

The change manager in Rollag municipality had a wild idea; can the health center that the municipality wants built in a few years become a health-promoting building - "a building that heals" ?. Well, we said and connected to the project and tried to keep up with the municipality's great level of ambition. After a preliminary study, the answer was "yes!". Through 2020 and 2021, we have assisted the municipality in finding the right level of innovation, weighing risk against price and not least applying the principles in innovation-friendly procurements; actively engage in dialogue with potential entrepreneurs, competence environments and other partners, and get them to jump on the ball to enter as suppliers to the future health center in Rollag. You will find out if the project reaches its goal during 2024!
