Innovation and creative solutions make all the difference between leaders and outsiders in the competitive modern market. Still most organizations approach the art of creative thinking unsystematically and chaotically. Innovative decisions in companies cannot be made intuitively. They require a deep understanding of the types of innovation, creative thinking techniques, methodologies, and innovation management. Our training course will show you how to think out of the box and how to improve creativity.
This course gives you all the tools, techniques, models, and theoretical knowledge required to move the innovation in your organization to the next level. You will learn a wide range of thinking styles and devote much time to an in-depth exploration of a variety of idea generation (ideation) techniques. Explore how to leverage the diversity of a team for even greater creative thinking skills and problem-solving ability. Then we switch to innovation types, and methodologies, the crucial idea management, creative thought process, and the overall innovation management process. Closer to the end of the course, we review why you should factor into your management of the organization’s innovation portfolio, then move onto a brief review of KPIs for various innovation types.
This creative thinking course is essential for Chief Innovation Officers, managers, staff in R&D departments, and everyone interested in leading their companies to a better innovative future. Participants of the course will improve the following creative and innovative thinking skills:
