Innovation Thinking Bootcamp: What if we could train teams to be more creative and innovative?
Updated: Jun 3, 2019
Challenge: Can creativity and innovation be taught? Absolutely! The world economic forum released a report on the Future of Work that listed the top 10 skills for the fourth Industrial Revolution. Creativity is rapidly becoming one of the most sought-after skills for employers and managers. New disruptive technologies and business models are molding a world where organizations must have vision and the ability to make it happen in order to survive. We set out to create an educational experience that could equip teams with a concrete process and a toolkit of methodologies to up-skill their creativity, cognitive flexibility and innovation abilities.
Action: We believe that everyone grows up knowing to create, play and innovate, but as we get older we start to get entrenched in the whirlwind and we forget what we intrinsically do- make! We knew that innovation education had to be fun and enjoyable to make a lasting impact, so we created the 2-day Innovation Thinking Bootcamp. During this hands-on, experiential workshop, attendees work through the Corvos Innovation Process, learning key steps and tools to see around corners to understand what could be.
Impact: The bootcamp was a success! We asked attendees how creative, innovative and centered they felt on a scale of 1-10 before and after the class; we saw the needle move from 7.0 up to 8.2! Attendees felt more confident and ready to interview users, to co.design a product or service, to identify opportunities for innovation and to protoype experiences and products.
