How to Develop Innovation and Creativity at Work

May 18, 2016 @ 1:00 pm - 4:30 pm

18th May | 1:00 pm – 4:30 pm – Are you or your team in need of a quick burst of inspiration? Or perhaps you are under pressure to make more impact? If yes, our new innovation and creativity half-day workshop might be just the thing. An afternoon of inspiring examples, practical exercises, and a toolkit that makes simple work of that mystical buzzword ‘innovation’. You will leave invigorated with lots of practical take-aways to help you get better results.

This half-day workshop will demystify innovation, and give you a roadmap and a practical toolkit to guide you through every stage of an innovation process; from identifying the root cause of a problem, challenging assumptions, gaining insight about your customers, supporters and the marketplace, having ideas, choosing the best ones to develop and making them happen.

You will also get to experience and work on creating your own supportive environment for innovation, where there is space for new ideas to flourish, where it is safe to share and learn from failure which combined with a sense of urgency helps to ensure that the best ideas happen. At the end of this workshop you will have;

– An understanding of how to get a good idea from a sketch on the back of an envelope to the marketplace.
– Learnt how to unpick the most important problems to tackle.
– Tried out some different tactics to think creatively and have lots of ideas.
– Experienced an enjoyable and supportive environment for creativity and innovation.
– Your own innovation toolkit to take away.
