Why Building and using Innovation Skill
- We are increasingly asked “to think out of the box” – but lack the guidance or the methodology to do so.
- Traditional approaches like focused brain storming helps us create many ideas but few actually solve the problem
- Innovation is a skill that can be learned and developed through practice
- It helps us to identify contradictions in problems faced and use a systems thinking approach to understand the interlinkages
- Helps us to discover solutions very close to ideality that is also practical and easy to deploy
How will the program benefit the participants and the sponsoring organizations?
- Help participants to conduct Ideality thinking and problem solving
