Creativity and innovation are the most important drivers to success in business. Yet IBM discovered that half of CEOs surveyed were ill-equipped to manage creativity, and 56% said they’d like to be creative… but didn’t know how.
ThinkOTB’s ‘How to Innovate’ Workshop is the solution for organisations to not only manage creativity and innovation, but to create a business-wide culture of innovation, that has the power to propel organisations to success.
This powerful team workshop reveals the innovation process and gives colleagues the practical tools and mindset to effectively solve your organisation’s strategic problems.

ThinkOTB’s ‘How to Innovate’ Workshop has been run hundreds of times and has trained thousands of people in organisations across the world including Google, National Grid and Unilever.

Innovation training is so valuable that the UK Government will subsidise the cost of ThinkOTB’s ‘How to Innovate’ Workshop and staffing costs through R&D expenditure credit (RDEC). Plus, we’re so confident that your organisation will benefit from our workshop that if you don’t love it, you don’t pay a penny.
ThinkOTB’s ‘How to Innovate’ Workshop is for any organisation, of any size. It’s for every department and for every employee and Board Member. Great ideas can come from anyone at any time and 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.
12 colleagues will gather on Teams (face-to-face when Government guidelines allow) where ThinkOTB’s experienced facilitator will take them through six stages, teaching them the tools and techniques needed to turn bad ideas into credible innovations. There is the option to include a pre-paid credit card (normally £100 – £250) for your organisation to invest in each participant’s research or realisation.
Over the course of a day, participants will test, improve and validate their ideas until they reach Level Six where they will sell their idea to management. The facilitator will refine their presentation skills and management can critique the idea or take it to the Board and implement the innovation.
ThinkOTB’s ‘How to Innovate’ Workshop has been tried and tested hundreds of times and is credited with giving participants the tools to create incredible new products, services, company cultures and ways of working, such as the safest hard hat in the world, a new way of generating electricity, a marketing proposition to attract wealthy donors, a new lamppost design, new ice cream toppings, a way to implement cultural change… and the list goes on.
Our facilitators have over 30 years of international experience in innovation, working with some of the biggest and most advanced organisations in the world. Our innovation doesn’t stop at the idea. ThinkOTB are masters at fast-tracking ideas to market through our creative marketing team, which means the power of innovation can be quickly realised by workshop participants.
