The IziCwe Code - Out innovate your competitors

This one-day masterclass, presented by international brand leadership experts, Dr Nikolaus Eberl and Herman Schoonbee (authors of the World Cup Brand Ambassador Program) will teach you how to discover your BrandVantage and become the Market Leader in your Industry.

Would you like to be one of the ten most profitable companies on this planet?

Outstrip the market value of your five closest competitors put together?

Be twice as profitable as any other competitor in your industry?

Toyota has achieved all of these distinctions and the key to their "unbeatable recipe for success" (Fortune Magazine) has been a system that is turning employee ideas into solutions: one million ideas per annum, to be exact.

These ideas come from every level of the organization - from the factory floors to the corporate suites. World-class benchmarks like Lexus, Prius, even Toyota's vaunted production system are shining examples of the amount of innovation generated by Toyota employees. As Fujio Cho, Vice Chairman of Toyota said: "If you are not busy reinventing your company, I guarantee you are falling backwards".

Almost two hundred years ago, Emperor Shaka developed the formula for what today has become the secret weapon of modern-day market-leaders: Internovation™ - Internal Innovation, in other words the generation and implementation of ideas from the people who know your clients best: Your Team Members.

Jack Welch, former CEO of General Electric - the world's most enduringly successful corporation states that the key mechanism that made the 'difference between GE and the rest of the world' was the boundary-less system that allowed everyone in the company to 'search for and apply the best ideas regardless of their source' and led GE to "find a better way every day".
