Creative and Innovative Thinking: Creating User-focused Solutions to Address Changing Needs

October 8, 2020 @ 9:00 am - October 9, 2020 @ 4:00 pm

Why join the workshop?

Sadly, “creativity” has long been relegated to the realm of the artist. For far too long, we have heard people say “I am not creative enough” or “I’m not an artist, so I cannot be creative”.

Let’s get something out of the way: creativity is NOT artistry.

In this virtual workshop, we will explore and understand the true nature of creativity in the context of human function. We will look at how our creativity works and how we can harness our own innate abilities to become creative both on a personal and a professional level. From this understanding we then look into “innovation” and what that means vis-a-vis creativity in the workplace. The workshop culminates with techniques on how you, and your team, can harness the power of creative thinking to bring about meaningful change and value to the business.

Outline:

  • What makes innovative teams?

    • Analyze opportunities for innovation

    • Examine the pros and cons of innovation

  • Features of a culture of enquiry and risk taking

Methodology:

  • The program will be live/synchronous. The resource person will be speaking real-time (not recorded) to the participants discussing topics, facilitating activities for engagement and answering questions for clarity. Each session will have breaks every 45 minutes to 1 hour. 
  • The program will also have an output as proof of learning. 
  • Class size will be limited to a maximum of 20 participants so concerns of each participant can easily be addressed.
