The 2017 World Economic forum sited problem solving, critical thinking and creativity as the top three most necessary skills required for people and businesses to succeed. This session looks at new ways to develop these skills.
We are in the age of imagination, which means the ability to be creative and leverage our thinking are success and revenue driving qualities. During the industrial age we valued speed of production, in the imagination age, the quality of our conversations and thinking are the intangible and valuable commodities.
In this session, we investigate the context of the current chaotic world in which we live. It looks from the lens of how Australian businesses have achieved and known success on a macro as well as individual level and what has changed over the last thirteen years. We explore the skills that are now required for business and individual success and new techniques we can apply to achieve this.
We explore innovative idea generation tools such as the Buyer’s Utility Map, as a way to capture new ideas and focus in on particular areas of need or value. We also share the Aggregated Project Filter concept of rating and prioritising ideas to ensure an influx of innovation can be actioned appropriately.
There are games and activities throughout the day, which encourage divergent thinking. Participants will learn how to create an environment where innovation and cognitive insights can be achieved more readily.
Participants will feel surprised and delighted by what they discover in this session and will walk away with an exciting suite of new tools and tips to implement a culture of innovation in their workplaces.
This course is appealing to aspiring, emerging and current leaders, business owners, salespeople, volunteers and teammates wanting to look to new tools and techniques to achieve success. There is an optional qualification upgrade available.
