ALE Brewery Introduction
2. Dive in the ALE Brewery and Team up with innovative ALE employees
The ALE Brewery is where good ideas go to grow. The Brewery provides a place to cultivate disruptive ideas from inspiration to ideation, and from incubation to industrialization.
The Brewery project, introduced in the summer of 2017, unleashed a strong and passionate innovation spirit across ALE, confirming that innovation can come from anywhere. ALE employees from across the organization jumped onboard with dozens of ideas. In addition to encouraging new ideas to ignite, the ALE Brewery project facilitates the growth of the ideas through a 4-stage program.
- Inspiration: ideas are generated
- Ideation: ideas are explored to prove their value
- Incubation: after a pitch session, a project team Is created to transform ideas into prototypes
- Industrialization: after an idea has been through the incubation stage, an opportunity is provided for teams to convince a jury that their ideas deserved a place in the ALE development roadmap
We know that good ideas and disruptive innovation don’t come from just inside organizations; they also come from mixing minds, cultures and external groups. That’s why the ALE Brewery is not restricted just to employees, but is open to all ALE stakeholders, partners, students and start-up organization to participate.
