The demand for Chief Innovation Officers is on the rise, but companies are having problems finding people who possess the characteristics, traits, experiences and knowledge that make a great CINO!

Recommendations from past participants

“I started using Kanban and Note & vote at my work before we even finished the CINO Academy. Five-day SPRINT switched the whole team to 6th gear and showed us how we can innovate, test and prepare prototypes quickly and efficiently. Enabling, proofing, repetitive prototype making and quick learning will lead me in the future, and the basis for this is of course falling in love with the challenges.”

– Larisa Potokar, Telekom Slovenije, CINO

“I am convinced that CINO will be among the most sought-after and desirable positions in the future. CorpoHub team has prepared a great experience for us and I will be able to use the acquired knowledge at my work. Innovation and tools such as Kanban, Scrum and Sprint will help me respond to changes even more quickly and effectively. You are great. Thank you.”

– Tinkara Fortuna, Telekom Slovenije, sales
