Rapid Learning Cycles Certified® Advisor Fernanda Torre is working with the Swedish Institute for Standards (SIS) on the development of the ISO for innovation Management, the ISO standard #56000, integrating practices that include Rapid Learning Cycles into the innovation management ISO. This work is done on the technical committee 279 which has published six ISO Standards: fundamentals and vocabulary, innovation management system, tools and methods for innovation partnerships, assessment, IP management and strategic intelligence management. Rapid Learning Cycles framework is compatible with all the ISO in the 56000 family, especially the ISO 56002 Innovation Management System, where Rapid Learning Cycles fits perfectly in the innovation process.
Fernanda founded Next Agents, a consulting boutique that focuses on innovation management, future thinking, and sustainability innovation practices. The company takes an integrated approach to business, design, and innovation, making Next Agents the perfect collaborator for the types of innovation principles and practices that make the RLC foundation so strong and robust.
Fernanda has been an affiliate for the Rapid Learning Cycles Institute after learning about it in the MBA program at the Stockholm School of Economics, one of the leading business schools in Europe. She later became a teacher in the MBA program where she also taught Rapid Learning Cycles and has since implemented in several leading Nordic businesses. Her goal is to help spread awareness of the framework throughout the Nordics, and make it more accessible to organizations throughout the nearby regions.
