Innovate or die. Do more with less. This is what individuals and teams are being pushed to do if they want their business to survive and thrive. Being innovative and creative in the current context is more important than ever as resources are tight and competition is fierce.
As Edward de Bono, the guru of lateral thinking, puts it: ”Creativity has become essential. This is because everything else has become a commodity available to everyone…There is nothing you can do to prevent your competitors also becoming competent…That leaves creating new value as the basis for competition.”
When you need a creative boost or an injection of innovation we can help. We have all kinds of tricks up our sleeves to help you and your team break out of ideation-fatigue, think differently, be strategic and drive those ideas to action.
Innovation Labs & Processes
Facilitated events to develop ideas and actions for REAL work opportunities and challenges using a range of processes and tools.
- Innovate or Dinosaur – a collaborative innovation game to generate new ideas and move them to action.
- Biomimicry – get inspiration and problem solve using the world’s greatest invention system – nature.
- Design thinking, creative problem solving, or rapid prototyping for services, products or business systems.
- TRIZ / TIPS (Theory of Inventive Problem Solving) based on patterns of invention in the global patent literature.
Innovation Skills Building
Learning workshops that build individual or group capacity to actively use innovation techniques and lead innovation processes internally or with clients.
- Innovation Diamond – an innovation learning game exploring the roles and techniques of the innovation process.
- Workshops on creative and critical thinking and on particular processes, tools and techniques.
- Train-the-trainer events and coaching.
The innovation game workshop worked very well. It helped our MBAs understand some key aspects of creativity, practice creative techniques, and learn new ones. An excellent ingredient of the workshop. I will definitely use it again, very soon.
