Innovation tools

Getting ideas is not the problem. All organisations have more ideas than what they can do something about. But in order to discover the ideas that give the impacts you want to create, a good methodology is needed. This course gives you proven tools for highlighting ideas from different perspectives and getting the buy-in to implement them.

This course will give you a toolbox for innovation and you will know which tools should be used when you have innovation workshops in your organisation

This course is for everyone who are passionate about creative processes and want to get serious.

After this course…

You will be able to hold a great and impactful innovation workshop on your own.
