Training Creative Facilitators
Bespoke training for groups of in-house facilitators in half-day sessions – providing a toolkit of core creative techniques for Problem Exploration and Idea Generation. Training provides would-be facilitators with the essential knowledge and experience accumulated over time, whilst simultaneously addressing core organisational issues – driving innovation as and when the organisation chooses.
Critically important in the success of any programme is the in-house Champion for both Creativity and Innovation. The role of Champion demands new activities and behaviours that benefit enormously from individual support from an experienced coach, experienced in the routes to success, and the pitfalls along the way.
Training Innovation Managers
Creativity, applied to Challenge-Solving and delivering Breakthrough thinking, is only part of the overall Innovation process – particularly for large scale, expansive, innovation. The role of the Innovation Manager (or Champion) demands an in-depth understanding of the following inter-locking elements:
Scanning, Challenge Solving, Implementation, Communication, Adoption
Combine the above elements as required to tailor a programme that will embed a systematic approach to driving innovation, reflecting the structure of the business, the aims, and the current stage of development.
