Scenario-Based Innovation Workshops
Workshops that get Your Team Ready to Challenge the World
Half-day and full-day innovation workshops unleash your team’s creativity. Learn about scenario thinking, then leap into highly engaging activities that unshackle your team from their mental constraints.
Apply Scenarios to Business Problems
Directly apply scenario-based futures to one or more challenges currently being faced by your organization. Come away with dozens of new ideas that will transform products and process driven by new perspectives on markets and customers.
Unleash Individual Creativity
Help individuals break out of their day-to-day routines and light their personal creative fires by challenging their assumptions about the business and the world. Forces participants to use agile thinking.
Avoid Surprises .
By looking at multiple futures, participants will be less likely to be surprised by social, economic, political or technological incidents that would derail their project. The workshop is the first step in navigating the future more effectively.
Discover Emergent Opportunities
Just because you come to the workshop with an idea to test against the future, that doesn’t mean it’s the only or even the best solution that your organization can deliver in a differentiated way. You may well leave the workshop with a few ideas that you hadn’t considered, or even rethinking ideas you discarded because they didn’t fit a more rigid set of assumptions about the future.
Test and Challenge Assumptions
The biggest blocker to innovation is thinking “you know.” You know your future customer. You know how regulations will play out. You know what technologies will emerge. But you don’t know. This workshop breaks down the barriers to seeing possibilities.
Design an Early Warning System
Once you understand the uncertainties facing your job, your company and your industry, you can then monitor how they unfold overtime in a systematic and purposeful way.
Mine the Implications
At the end of the workshop we look back at the projects and processes you brought with you, those that emerged during the session, and infer from the the scenarios a first pass at implications for the business, the industry and the individual.
