Measurably improves innovation outcomes in the organisation 

Who shouldn’t take this workshop?

…The people who don’t need to think! 

Great ideas can come from anyone at any time, it’s knowing what to do with it that turns it into a great innovation. So this workshop is designed for anyone who has to think in their role.

To adapt the old saying: take a colleague’s idea to market and they’ll innovate once. Give them the tools to think creatively and they’ll champion a culture of innovation company wide.

How ‘How to Innovate’ works

This invigorating day is unlike any training the team will have done before! ThinkOTB has refined this third generation of the Adobe Kickbox to ensure participants come out bursting with ideas, highly motivated, and ready to take on the company’s challenges.

In groups of up to 12 colleagues, a ThinkOTB Facilitator will take them through six stages, sharing the tools and techniques needed to turn bad ideas into credible innovations. They’ll leave with copies for next time they have an idea that is too good to waste. 

Participants will test, improve and validate their ideas until they reach Level Six where they will sell their idea. The Facilitator will refine their presentation skills and colleagues can critique the idea or take it to the senior team and run with the innovation. 

In Person: One of our motivating Facilitators brings the workshop to a venue of your choice

Virtually: A Facilitator brings your colleagues from around the world together on MS Teams

Growing the ‘innovation attitude’ internally

One workshop can have incredible effects on innovation in the organisation. But the impact grows exponentially when everyone does the workshop and an innovation culture is created.

So when your organisation is ready to roll out the workshops, we roll out the internal comms to get everyone engaged – from the comms strategy to producing the online and offline materials.
