Experience is the best way to learn, but it can be slow, risky and unpredictable on the job. Instead, you can give your people that valuable experience in our workshop, where they're challenged to roll up their sleeves and learn the "what's", "why's" and "how's" of innovation and change.
It's faster, it's safer, and it's more focused on the results you need to achieve.
This workshop begins with a fundamental understanding of improvisation as a tool for innovative thinking. Improvisational courses are being taught in MBA programs at Harvard, MIT, NYU, and many more to help leaders become agile and open to solutions no matter where they originate. The Stanford D School process for innovative thinking is one of the best regarded programs of its type in the world. Combining these two pillars of thinking differently provides the building blocks necessary to create a sustainable culture of innovation.
We will work with your stakeholder team pre-event in order to identify real issues your team is facing that will be used during our brainstorming portion of the workshop. Your team will leave with anywhere from 20-30 actionable ideas that have been bubbled up by your attendees. This encourages investment and ownership by participants which is the first step towards adoption and execution.
By the end of this session, participants will be able to:
Utilize improvisational techniques to create an environment of non-judgmental collaboration
Identify a common language and process for innovation
Apply innovative problem-solving skills to “broader” corporate challenges
