Innovation Management Workshop
Quidgest held an “Innovation Management Workshop” on October 27, allowing nine participants with roles in management, development, and innovation to learn about the Genio platform and understand how to build and optimize an Innovation Management system.
The program explored several topics, including the importance of digital Geniuses, information system modeling, standards and abstraction capacity, data structure and relational model, business rules, user interfaces, or user experience organization with process menus.
About this experience, Tânia Venâncio, Superior Technician of the Portuguese National Road Safety Authority, said: “I really liked the way I was received by Quidgest and had the opportunity to establish new contacts with other people from the Public Administration, being aware of the shared ideas. It was interesting to discover the solutions provided by Quidgest, in particular the Genio tool, on which the workshop was focused, and to realize that with it the user can develop his ideal solution with a lot of autonomy, not to mention the possibility of hiring training and advice. Since I am not in the IT area, I ended up seeing this workshop from a perspective more directed to management and use, assuming that it would be possible for the various systems to communicate with each other and be feasible to apply in my organization. It is always useful to know what is available in the market and to follow the new trends in the area of innovation.”
Also, Lieutenant Colonel Tiago Fazenda, a member of the future Innovation and Doctrine Division of the Portuguese Army, shared his experience in the workshop: “When I was at Q-Day, I was very interested in the Genio platform and the potentialities it presents, so I enrolled and encouraged the participation in this Innovation Management Workshop, to understand how I could help the implementation of the System in the Portuguese Army. The workshop was completely aligned with what was proposed, it was highly practical, with the right dose of theory for the presentation context and, therefore, I consider it a very profitable experience, which gave me completely new perspectives on the concept itself and the various options for building the system, among others.”
This eminently practical workshop was given by João Paulo Carvalho, Co-founder and Senior Partner at Quidgest, Sónia Fernandes, Software Developer and Trainer at Quidgest, and André Jorge, R&D Project Manager at Quidgest.
