Creativity, stimulation, provocation, naivety, driving Innovation
Ideas Centres are progressively being rolled out in towns and cities across the UK – see www.ideascentregroup.com for list of current locations.
Focusing on organisational transformation, an Ideas Centre provides a forum for regular practice and experiential learning of creativity techniques and facilitation along with a framework for embedding within member organisations. Members will have access to 6x half-day meetings each year, with 2 places per meeting for each member:
Creativity workshops will introduce and explore a core toolkit of techniques, including:
Highly hands-one, participants will be provided with experience to “go it alone” – understanding the principles that under-pin the techniques sufficiently to then introduce the techniques into their own organisations.
Member organisations will be encouraged to establish in-house Creativity Workshops – meeting on a monthly basis in the first instance, providing a vehicle for the systematic introduction of provocative thinking. Meetings will last no more than 1 hour, involving 5 or 6 members of staff for each meeting –including Problem Owner and Facilitator.
