SAI Innovations – SAI Brazil’s Innovation Lab experiences

IDI launched its SAI Innovations initiative in November 2020 to highlight the importance of seeking to adopt new innovations and finding new solutions to SAIs to stay relevant for the benefit of all. In SAI Innovations we embrace horizontal sharing of ideas and innovations.

Throughout this initiative we highlight that the innovations always should fit to the context, capacities and purpose, and that innovations can happen in multiple layers and be seen from different perspectives - an institutional and a people perspective, from technological and social perspective.

In the SAI Innovations Marketplace events we are happy to invite our colleagues and stakeholders to share their experiences to support the SAI community in our common journey to go FAR (Flexible, Agile, Resilient). We started the year 2021 with the Marketplace event by SAI Brazil on January 20th, in which Ms Carla Motta shared the experience of SAI Brazil’s innovation Lab (coLAB-i) and the 10 steps for innovating developed by them.

SAI Brazil’s Innovation Lab was created in in the beginning of 2015 to bring innovation to the institution in order to face the challenges of the VUCA (Vulnerable, Uncertain, Complex, Ambiguity) world we live in. How to tackle the changing culture and mindsets, and to overcome obstacles that might come along the way in order to be able to deliver more effective products and services and their main projects.
