Organizational Innovation Programs
Creativity is the key skill and organizational capability at the heart of innovation, which, recent developments in neuroscience demonstrate, can be learned like most other skills.
This program explores the role of creativity at work and imparts practical skills to develop your team’s creative ability. Teams and individuals will be exposed to and will learn the use of a number of tools to assist in the creative process, and identify the common creativity blockers and how they can be overcome.
Introduction to Creative Problem Solving
Much of what business managers and supervisors do is solve problems and make decisions and they are likely to do it by reacting to the problems. Often, when they encounter a new problem or decision they must make, they react with a decision that seemed to work before.
In this practical and experiential program, we will give participants both an organized approach to problem solving and decision making as well as a creative angle in viewing problems.
Facilitating Innovative Teams
Facilitation is often referred to as the new cornerstone of management philosophy. With its focus on fairness and creating an easier problem solving and decision making process, it is key when it comes to innovation.
This program will give participants an understanding of what facilitation is all about when it comes to innovation as well as introduce some discovery tools that they can use to facilitate problem definition, brainstorming and pattern breaking thinking activities for better and more effective solutions.
Managing Innovation, Creativity and Ideation Processes
Creativity and innovation are the lifeblood of a business. Managing Innovation, Creativity & Ideation Process explores ways of developing and fostering creative talent at the individual, team and organizational level.
This two-day workshop covers the most essential aspects for emerging leaders to shape an innovative and enterprising organization and to function effectively within it. It will equip you with the knowledge and confidence to boost productivity and performance within the organization.
The main functional role of managers and supervisors is to address problems, make swift decisions and minimize exposure to the business. The inclination is that they tend to treat most problems in a similar context. Hence, the solution may seem like a temporary outcome as compared to a more permanent and reliable solution.
This two-day workshop proposes both an organised and a creative approach to problem solving and decision making. Both Critical and Creative thinking, which have become personal and corporate imperatives, will help individuals forge a path from problems to solutions that are more dependent on logic, reasoning and imagination.
The methodology commonly referred to as design thinking is a proven and repeatable problem-solving protocol that any business or profession can employ to achieve better results. It comes from the design and product development realm where it takes many iterations to come up with solutions that users are willing to purchase. Now, it is more widely used in other areas as a methodology for solving problems and challenges more effectively.
This workshop will help participants understand the concept of design thinking and learn to apply the steps and the various tools associated with each of the steps to solve the challenges they face in their projects. It will also help them to work closely with their stakeholders, customers and users to ensure that the solution addresses their challenges and they are willing to implement and use the solution.
