Generate powerful new ideas and solve complex problems.
Discover creativity, innovation, disruption and collaboration methodologies with our hands-on toolkit to generate powerful new ideas and solve complex problems. The ability to innovate successfully (from small, incremental micro-improvements to large-scale, global initiatives) is the life-blood of business. The ability to present ideases, consciously work better together and create real change is a valuable skill-set. Learn how to deeply assess and understand the challenges ahead, generate solutions and how to turn those ideas into action - without wasting resources.
This training is delivered across 1 full working day. It is split up into 5 mini-workshops and discussions with regular breaks, including 45mins for lunch.

Delegates will be able to...
- Cut through the complexity and establish the true challenges, problems and solutions they should be working on.
- Establish a clear understanding as to how it is effecting the various individuals, teams and stakeholders (e.g. customers) involved.
- Utilise proven methodologies for generating new ideas to solving complex problems. They will understand that “there are always more ideas”, which elminates our sense of vulnerability when suggesting new ideas.
- Know when to rest, seek inspiration, connect the unconnected and not to rely on assumptions or past ‘accepted wisdom’.
- Understand how to implement prototyping and testing in order to minimise resources and risk.
- Understand the risks and processes required for effective collaboration, the setting of boundaries, roles, expectations and structured feedback.
The Business benefits because...
